Future of London runs events and field trips throughout the year to share knowledge, experience and best practice amongst and beyond our cross-sector network.

Our events feature expert speakers and contributors from the public, private and third sectors, generating debate and the exchange of innovative solutions to a range of policy challenges. You can find information on public-facing programmes here, along with write-ups and materials from past events. All Future of London events are free of charge, though registration is required and members receive advance notice. All FoL materials are free to download, and many are available in hard copy.

In addition to the scheduled events below, Future of London has a full programme in development for the coming year, addressing growth, workspace, infrastructure, estate renewal and housing zones, regeneration, resilience and more. Sign up to our newsletter for dates, and join the discussion!
