Heritage policymaking and economic policymaking have usually taken place separately. This is a big missed opportunity.
The heritage sector has a key role to play in driving growth that supports local communities and reduces inequality.
Heritage for inclusive growth, published in partnership with the British Council, explores a systemic approach which brings together heritage, economic development and wider range of inclusive outcomes – not only economic, but also social and environmental.
This report presents RSA research around what heritage for inclusive growth looks like in a UK context, with reflections and responses from the British Council drawing on the insights emerging from the global Cultural Heritage for Inclusive Growth programme.
