Social Value: How to be a good ancestor – report launch

 Registration is closed for this event

What are the principles of good urban development that will leave a social value legacy for future generations? Join us for the launch of our new report to find out. 

As interest in social value in housing and regeneration becomes mainstream, our research project, Unlocking Social Value, was set up to help London residents and built environment practitioners work together to deliver real social impact.

Our final report, Social Value: How to be a good ancestor, combines practical guidance, legacy principles and inspiring case studies to help people to achieve longer term benefits for communities and places.

We’ve engaged over 500 people from communities, public and private sectors and led inspiring field trips, workshops and webinars which have all pointed to a simple question: If we bring the legacy mindset of being a good ancestor to achieving social value, will we create better results?

At Future of London, we think the answer is yes.

At the launch event, Stephen Passmore, Head of Knowledge at Future of London, will outline the key findings of the report. This will be followed by a disucssion by built envirnment practioners and community representatives. As always, there time to network with friends, colleagues and new contacts.

When: Thursday 16 May 17:00 – 18:30
Where: in person, EC1Y

Thanks to our programme sponsors Bouygues UK, Countryside partnerships, Linkcity, Mount Anvil, Pollard Thomas Edwards, Trowers & Hamlins and Yoo Capital.
