NLA’s City Dialogues programme facilitates global discussion, connecting London with other cities in order to exchange information, discuss and debate shared urban issues, and compare approaches.
Each City Dialogues event brings two cities together using simple technology so that speakers and audiences in those cities can exchange information about key issues that are common to both places. Cities featuring in the programme include New York, Sydney, Toronto, Vancouver, Chicago and Stockholm.
In 2019, NLA will host the inaugural International Symposium - an event which will bring together city-makers from across the globe for a critical conversation about city planning. How do cities prepare and disseminate their strategies, and how do they put those plans into action?
As London’s centre for the built environment, NLA regularly welcome international delegations
, facilitating opportunities for visiting professionals, politicians and embassies to learn more about London’s development and current urban issues through bespoke programmes, which are tailored to suit the needs of the group.
