Reflect. Reset. Renew.
2020 is likely to be viewed as the most significant year in London’s history in generations. Yet in many respects the crisis is only accelerating trends and exposing issues that were already pressing.
The disproportionate impact of coronavirus on some Londoners has highlighted the long-enduring inequalities in our city. Other lifestyle changes forced upon us by the crisis have offered a glimpse of a calmer and greener future.
This conference will be a space for Londoners to reflect on how we should work together to put the capital back on its feet and create a more resilient and inclusive city. We’d like you to be a part of it.
The conference will feature sessions on
How London has weathered the storm of 2020 and what’s in store for the decade ahead • Community resilience and mutual aide • New working patterns and what they mean for central and outer London • Black Lives Matter • How the crisis changed the way we move around London – and how to keep it that way • The 15 minute city • The politics of green space • London’s future relationship with Asian powerhouses • London’s cultural sector powering a recovery of the soul and pocket • “Triumph of the City” in the Covid Age with Professor Edward Glaeser • US Election Night Pub Quiz
