Tuesday 23 May 2023 | 3.00pm to 7.00pm BST | Central London

Kindly hosted by Jacobs

As cities across the UK look to the future, there is a clear and pressing need to rethink how planning and policy decision makers can best support the often significantly changed communities they serve. While pandemic lockdown measures can feel like a distant memory, their impact continues to influence the way we think and operate, with ever increasing numbers of people reassessing where they live, work, shop, socialise, and how and how often they travel and get about. 

This changed landscape of priorities and work patterns presents a unique opportunity to evolve the built environment towards a greener, healthier and more equitable urban future. Now more than ever, towns and cities need to become more liveable. A whole of society approach, incorporating green infrastructure and digital social equity will be critical to a successful transition.

This event will explore the challenges faced by cities as they plan for these transitions, and the solutions and measures currently in place to support a smooth evolution.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Victoria Hills, Chief Executive, Royal Town Planning Institute
  • Jude Hassall, Partnership Manager, London Climate Change Partnership
  • Carlo Castelli, Head of Cities Solutions Europe, Jacobs 
  • Adam Hosking, Vice President and Global Director for Water Resources & Resilience, Jacobs
