Building Britain's Future

Progressive Britain’s annual conference returned in an election year for another huge day of debate and discussion around our theme for this year: delivery. 

Themed around Labour’s five missions we asked how the Party can deliver for Britain and rebuild the country after over a decade of Conservative decline. 

The mountain to climb is massive, and begins with a Labour general election win. That’s is why this year we will be adding a full campaiging track to the programme. Partnering with our friends at Labour to Win we’ll give you everything you need to be confident to go out and campaign for Labour at this crucial election.

"It’s easy to look at the wider world as the source of Britain’s problems… but in a world this polarised, this dangerous, we must never forget that it is the story we tell about ourselves and the choices that we make that will determine our fate"

David Lammy, Shadow Foreign Secretary - Conference 2024

Five Missions For Britain

This year at conference we focused on the five missions and this was reflected in our conference programme.

Growth

Labour’s plan for growth is ambitious: to secure the highest sustained growth in the G7. It is based on a powerful new approach,  ‘Securonomics’. 

Health

The NHS is on its knees. In fact, some would say it’s face down and taking a good kicking from the Tories. We have to get it back on its feet.

It’s time to rebuild the NHS.

Crime

Labour believes that security is the bedrock on which opportunities are built, communities can thrive, and local economies can prosper. 


Opportunity

The promise we tell our children and grandchildren that if you work hard and play by the rules, you will get on in life is sadly no longer the case for far too many.  

We’ve got to re-establish that link between hard work and opportunity.

Green

Britain has the potential to be a clean energy superpower. But, to get cheaper bills, better jobs and energy independence requires leadership, investment, and a plan.
