Broadway Initiative

The Broadway Initiative brings together a cross section of the main stakeholders and nationally recognised experts to generate ideas and proposals for world leading arrangements to govern the environment after EU exit. The purpose is to advise governments on how to enable all parts of society to play their part in achieving long term societal objectives.

Members come from the worlds of business, NGOs, professional bodies, governance, policy making and academia. For a list of members and others advising the initiative, CLICK HERE.
