The Royal Docks: Equalising opportunity in Public Space

Talk

Wednesday 15 July 2020
14:00 - 15:00

Join a panel of experts on public realm and inclusivity to find out ways we can ensure our public spaces are fit for all.
The Royal Docks is providing a range of unique opportunities for London across Public Realm, Transport, Culture, Communities and the Economy. At this extraordinary moment as we struggle through a period of social unrest and the impacts of lockdown on our City, how can areas like the Royal Docks help to champion innovation? How can the built environment sector contribute to more democratised public space? And what is the role of public realm in equalising opportunity?
