Cover image for Imagining the Future City: London 2062

Imagining the Future City: London 2062 is an edited collection based on the London 2062 project from UCL’s Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities. The London 2062 programme engaged academics, policy makers and practitioners, providing a forum for experts to debate the challenges, and opportunities, that will face London in the five decades following the Olympics.

The book is divided into four sections, considering London in terms of Connections, Things, Power and Dreams. The book features contributions from leading academic thinkers at UCL and from those involved in shaping London on the ground, through policy and practice. The authors consider the future of London from multiple viewpoints, including transport, energy, smart infrastructure, water, population, housing and the economy.

The aim of this book, and the London 2062 programme, is to open discussion about the future of London. What is the future we want to see for London? Which priorities for a global city are in opposition? How can we meet carbon emission targets and deliver new infrastructure in the 21st Century?

You are cordially invited to continue the discussion on Monday the 18th of November at the launch of the Imagining the Future City: London 2062.
