Events

Future of London’s events include workshops, webinars and seminars, field trips, roundtables, and conferences. Our events bring together FoL members as well as project partners and cross-sector contributors from our wider network, both as attendees and speakers. We run events regularly throughout the year. All events are free to attend.

FoL is closely monitoring government advice on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and we have moved many of our training and events online. See below for more details.
