London 2062

What will London look like in fifty years time? In 2012, Future of London partnered with University College London to facilitate a programme of events looking at the challenges facing London’s future development in relation to housing, energy, transport and the economy. We brought together a range of leading academics and practitioners to discuss and debate the actions we need to take in the coming decade to ensure the delivery of a sustainable future for our Capital City. A series of briefing papers was published throughout the programme, detailing key findings and recommendations for policy makers.

The project culminated with the publication of the book, Imagining the Future City: London 2062, edited by Sarah Bell and James Paskins, which is also available as a free download in PDF or epub format.
