London ideas – a platform for innovations that could change cities for the better

Centre for London is searching for the latest urban innovations from across London, the UK and around the world. We’re looking for ideas which could help tackle London’s economic, environmental and social challenges – especially in housing, transport, skills and social exclusion.

Do you have an idea which could help London?

We’re crowdsourcing ideas to feature at our London ideas events and in our magazine. If you’ve got an idea which could help the city, we’d love to hear about it.

We’re interested in hearing about:

  • The findings from a pilot programme that looks like it’s working
  • Successful projects from other cities
  • Small scale projects that could be expanded across the city
  • Policy interventions

What do you get out of it?

This is a great opportunity to put your idea to the test in front of some of London’s leading thinkers and doers.

We’ve created two platforms:

  1. London ideas event series

Our events showcase new ideas by innovators in Pecha Kucha style presentations to an audience of engaged urbanists. We held two London ideas events in 2018 and featured speakers at Centre for London’s flagship event, The London Conference 2018.

  1. A journal on urban innovation 

We send the London ideas magazine to London councils, policymakers and civic, business and third sector leaders. It combines compelling case studies, with essays, interviews with innovators and trend spotting. You can read the first issue here and the second issue here.
