This is a live online event. Please do not travel to the Institute.

As part of a special series of events on devolution and levelling up, featuring local leaders from across England, the Institute for Government is delighted to be joined by Steve Rotheram, Mayor of the Liverpool City Region and leader of the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority.

After nearly five years in office, Steve Rotheram will discuss his role as mayor, the progress he has made in improving economic and social outcomes in the Liverpool City Region, how he is working with the UK government to deliver levelling up and net zero objectives, and how he would like to see the powers of mayors evolve.

Steve Rotheram will be in conversation with Akash Paun, Senior Fellow at the Institute for Government.

This event will be broadcast live from Liverpool in front of an invited audience. There will be an opportunity to put questions to the mayor from both the online and in-person audience.

Steve Rotheram started his political career in 2002 as a Labour councillor on Liverpool City Council and served as Lord Mayor from 2008 to 2009. He was elected MP for Liverpool Walton in 2010 later becoming PPS to Jeremy Corbyn. He stood down as MP in 2017 and was elected Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region in May 2017.

We would like to thank the JRSST Charitable Trust for its support of our wider programme of work on metro mayors and English devolution, of which this event is part.
