This presentation brings together key points from the Real Regeneration series in New Start magazine and headlines from the regeneration manifesto we developed with practitioners and policy experts. An earlier version of this presentation was given at the fifth anniversary celebrations of Powell Dobson Urbanists in Cardiff. I've blogged about it here: http://livingwithrats.blogspot.com/2010/05/its-all-about-social-justice.html
