Urban regeneration has been regarded as one of the most important strategies to address the inner city decline and deprivation in physical, social and economic aspects (Tsenkova, 2002).Typically, urban regeneration will focus on the redevelopment of the physical land accompanied by introducing social and economic activities in that area and therefore promotes the development on all fronts. The regeneration programme includes housing, business, education, and leisure development which needs a high participation and contribution from both the public and private sector.
This poster will analyse the leadership challenges involved in urban regeneration in the North West. Salford Quays and New East Manchester have been selected as case studies in the area.
Urban Regeneration Defined…
A Governmental Perspective
The government views urban regeneration as an opportunity to create, protect and enhance job prospects. Investment can be made in infrastructure and image, business and development, generating income, profit and resources to be distributed equally between both affluent and deprived areas (DETR, 2000).
An Academic Perspective
Urban regeneration is a comprehensive and integrated vision and action to address urban problems through a lasting improvement in the economic, physical, social and environmental condition of an area (Roberts and Sykes, 2000).
“…by the core principles of ensuring that the regeneration of the area built in long-term sustainability in every respect – economic, social, and environment; an aspiration to achieve the highest standards of physical redevelopment; and a focus on the retention of the existing population along with the improvement of their social and economic prospects.” (NEM, 2008)
“…not only on making the most of the many physical assets but on ensuring that the local residents are among the first to benefit from a city which is vibrant and prosperous where local people live in pleasant and safe surroundings and enjoy better schools and jobs.” (Vision & Regeneration Framework, 2008)

The aim of this project is to provide a comprehensive analysis, outlining the different perspectives on the implementation of nuclear power in the UK. The country is currently at a crossroads in determining which direction to turn with regard to energy supply in the UK. The government has recently published the White Paper, which outlines the country’s current energy position and the problems it faces. Further, the report points to where the country is heading. The government’s principle argument is that building new nuclear power stations will provide an answer to the looming energy crisis, as well as help to reduce the country’s carbon emissions. With commitments to carbon reduction agreed under the Kyoto Protocol - as part of the international Framework Convention on Climate Change - the need for immanent action has never been so strong.

We look at the scientific facts surrounding nuclear energy, why it is so controversial, why the argument is so relevant now and list possible alternatives.
Furthermore, we look at the issue from a leadership perspective, as well as outlining what individuals can do to influence the argument. We aim to provide a fair, balanced view on the situation so that you can make an educated and informed decision as to what stance you will take.

One of the biggest problems that our world faces today is poverty. Education and poverty are directly linked – areas of high poverty have poor education.
What is poverty? Poverty is the state of having a very low income, not being able to afford food and healthcare, lack of shelter, not having the opportunity to access education and having an uncertain future. Poverty exists in every part of the world, both in developed and developing countries.
Access to simple education facilities is problematic in developing countries whereas in developed countries there is a wide range of performance.
Education is defined as the process of teaching, developing knowledge, skills and character of person. Hence education is very vital for further development of any nation or society.
This ePoster focuses on formal education in developing and developed countries, comparing the inequalities in primary, secondary and higher education.
Case studies will illustrate the differences in higher education in developing countries and secondary education in developed education. This will provide a clear insight into the inequalities in education.
In focusing on education issues, we have looked at several leaders and organisations that can exert influence in improving standards of education. In particular, an interview was conducted with the charity, READ International.

“ I chose the MLP because I wanted to diversify my course even further and I also thought it would be a great way to meet students form other disciplines and gain new perspectives. On both counts the course has exceeded my expectations.
I’ve enjoyed the volunteering aspect – lots of variety and really fun.
The MLP has also encouraged me to look at how I am spending my time here at Manchester, and the positive impact I can have on both my local community and the wider world.”
