From Childhood to Adulthood – the Long Shadow of Where You Grow Up

0 out of 5


In this talk, we’ll discuss how where people grow up can leave an indelible mark on their life’s journey.

Using a variety of sources and compelling research, we’ll uncover the ways that living in disadvantaged neighbourhoods can impact individuals’ chances in life, from childhood to adulthood, and even affect their children’s futures. We’ll explore the barriers that arise from limited access to infrastructure, peer network, quality education, healthcare, and job opportunities, as well as the unseen toll of environmental hazards and stressors. Throughout our discussion of the long shadow of neighbourhood deprivation, we’ll highlight the implications for policy and intervention efforts, aimed at addressing social inequality and promoting equitable opportunities for all individuals and communities
