Central London is facing significant challenges. The impact of automation, the collapse of the high street, and the possibility of an economic shock of Brexit, could all play a role in undermining its success.
Central London is home to iconic green and public spaces, national museums and cultural attractions, world-famous retail districts, top universities, the machinery of both national and city-wide government, and the monarchy. It is responsible for one-third of London’s jobs, and almost one-tenth of the economic output of the entire UK and is crucial for continued national prosperity.
Against this backdrop, Centre for London is hosting a high-level roundtable to explore what is needed to keep central London thriving as a sociable and economic city centre. This discussion will draw on our latest publication of London ideas, a magazine which helps develop and promote ideas that can help London and other cities.
The event will bring together London’s business and cultural leaders, experts and innovators to discuss:
- How will businesses, cultural institutions and employers need to adapt to help Central London thrive?
- What is the role of the big employers, cultural and anchor institutions in driving innovation in the city?
This event is invite-only. If you would like to register your interest to attend please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
