Events and podcasts

Leading the way for cities

Leading the way for cities is an alumni-led series of events, podcasts and blog posts that engage with city-makers in their aspirations for the future of our cities, drawing on their collective experience, ideas, resilience and leadership as we emerge from the pandemic.

The series seeks to re-appraise the status quo, bring fresh thinking to tricky issues, and help us to challenge ourselves on ways to be more ambitious for our cities, through our work.

CityBites Podcast

Our peer-driven podcast invites guests from different sectors and roles to share stories, insights and ideas. The aim is to support and inspire the next wave of city leaders.

Human-Centred Design: Taster training for our alumni
Tuesday 18 January 2024, 9:15am to 12:30pm

An exclusive training opportunity for our alumni. This course will provide an introduction to Human Centred-Design and practical exercises to apply it to built environment challenges. Register here

These bespoke events can explore more edgy territory than mainstream FoL events due to the closed forum. They’re designed and coordinated by alumni reps with support from Lovell. Events are open to alumni (no matter where they work now) and their guests.

Alumni representatives

Alumni are represented on the Future of London board and steering group. and the Future of Greater Manchester board and steering group.  For FoL, two pairs of two-year reps overlap, to share the load and help build knowledge. FoGM is just getting started, with two reps anticipated for 2023.

These volunteers organise events, coordinate e-bulletins with news and vacancies, curate the LinkedIn group and serve as a voice for alumni and candidates. They have guaranteed spaces at Steering Group dinners and regular contact with the FoL/FoGM team, to forward ideas and concerns. This is a great experience, confidence- and CV-builder; to learn more, contact your reps. Current reps are:
