With the major regeneration of the Royal Docks well underway, and huge amounts of investment over the next 20 years, it is vital that key aspects of the docks history and identity are maintained and celebrated for the future. Community involvement that embraces all groups that make up the docks is central to this process, and will ensure a vibrant and inclusive place is created for the long-term. This offers a rare opportunity for regeneration to deliver genuine benefits to the local area and build community wealth. 
 
This webinar brings together key voices shaping the future of the Royal Docks, ensuring its past is interwoven with its future to create a unique new area of London that the local community can be proud of. How is the Community Strategy for the Royal Docks ensuring regeneration brings long-term community benefits and enabling people to be part of the changes? How is local knowledge and talent shaping the identity of the docks and informing development? As we emerge from the pandemic, with health and wellbeing front and centre, how will the Royal Docks build in resilience and quality of life?
