City Makers’ Forum

Father Thames

There has never been a more challenging and exciting time to live and work in London. The pace of change is fast and shows no sign of stopping. The capital will need leaders who can manage this shifting and complex landscape. But what will the future challenges be and what kind of leadership is required?

Many of London’s urban leadership programmes are working to equip future leaders with the confidence, skills and knowledge they’ll need. But this is not enough. Urban professionals also need an engaged and diverse network to draw upon.

In response, Future of London and Hatch Regeneris have established a cross-sector, interdisciplinary network that complements existing leadership programmes by building collective resilience and a spirit of collaboration.

Through regular events that explore key urban issues with invited guest speakers, this forum will bring together those interested in shaping the future of our cities to share experience and learn from one another.

Get Involved

We want to bring as many of London’s future leaders together as possible. If you’d like to be involved in the forum, contact us.
