During January 2013 New Start published a series of articles on the regeneration of east London. The series attracted a lot of interest and there is an opportunity to continue the conversation with partners and friends working in our region. We plan to get together to both celebrate the local innovations over the last decade and think about how we can collaborate on some of the challenges and opportunities of the forthcoming decade.
New Start have organised a half-day event to reflect on the changes in east London over the last ten years and help to map the policies and projects that will enable inclusive, sustainable and just communities for its residents. The event will involve the active participation of the audience to share new ideas and help build a community of professional signed up to working together for the benefit of east London.

Three key questions for the day are:

2. How can we collaborate better with each other going forward?
3. What things do we need to do differently now, given austerity and other challenges?
Join us to plan the next ten years of change in east London.
