New London Architecture

NextGen Virtual Meet Ups


Thursday 29 April 2021
16:00 - 17:30

Join us for some virtual networking as we create opportunities for NLA’s younger members to come together, connect and discuss the future of London as we move through the pandemic. 
With so few opportunities for young professionals to come together and meet one another during lockdown, we want to provide virtual environments for collaboration and networking to take place. 
This networking session will be informal and hopefully fun! A few questions on London’s future as we move through the pandemic will form the agenda. We’ll have some small group discussions with opportunities to come together as one group and share. The key points will be written up and featured on the NLA website.  
NextGen is an NLA initiative which identifies and supports young talent from across the industry, championing the professional development of the built environment’s future leaders. Join us!
