Both Legal & General and Birkbeck share the goal to deliver progressive and long-lasting outcomes for students, our local communities, and the planet. Together, we have launched a partnership to combine Birkbeck’s renowned academic research with Legal & General’s financial and industry-relevant support.
Birkbeck aims to equip its students with the skills and knowledge to find innovative solutions to local and global challenges, and by offering evening study, it welcomes a diverse community who may not otherwise be able to access this education. Like Birkbeck, Legal & General recognises that building a more sustainable future is as much a people challenge as it is a scientific, technical, or economic one.
Through our co-developed projects, we hope to inspire the next generation of leaders to approach unprecedented challenges confidently and develop innovative solutions using a multisectoral approach:
At Birkbeck and Legal & General we have a shared belief in people’s power to solve problems and seize opportunities. The work of building a more sustainable future will require the mobilisation of significant amounts of capital; but ultimate success will depend on the expertise and commitment of more and more people. Access to high-quality education is one of the great enablers of change and I look forward to the impact we can achieve together.
