New London Leaders: Changing the Face of London


Friday 04 December 2020
10:00 - 11:00

With the Mayoral elections approaching in 2021, we invite a panel of young professionals representative of different sectors across the industry to provide their ask for the London’s future.
A key component of the NLA 2020 research study, The Changing Face of London, is the London 2035 Checklist. Building on the successes and transformations of the last 15 years, London has the opportunity to reposition itself even more positively in the future. With the many challenges facing London, this set of recommendations illustrates how we might ‘reboot’ London to be more sustainable and inclusive. 
What do we need to prioritise? What radical action must we take? How do we implement that radical action? What does the next generation need to make London’s future better?
