Join us at the launch of our report on the future of Central London.

About this Event

How can Central London's boroughs, businesses and residents better coordinate to ensure this vital district is fit for the future?

The Central Activities Zone (CAZ) is responsible for one third of London jobs and 10 per cent of the UK's economic output. As London's core, it plays many roles: a destination for tourists, a home for residents, a hub for business and government. But the challenges it faces - from congestion to homelessness - are growing.

The launch of our latest research about Central London will bring together London’s leaders from central London boroughs, Business Improvement Districts, cultural institutions, universities and employers to discuss the future of our capital's core.

With new research from Dr Jack Brown, including analysis of the centre's changing population, employment sectors, poverty and governance, this event will reveal the changes taking place in the capital's core.

The panellists will also discuss:

  • How can Central London continue to thrive in a period of rapid economic change and increased pressure on infrastructure?
  • How can policy makers balance the needs of residents with those of businesses, tourists and other stakeholders?
  • What role can businesses, cultural and other institutions play in shaping central London's future?
