Cities are first and foremost made by its people. Jan Kattein’s new book, 'Londoners Making London', tells the story of nine projects that have transformed urban neighbourhoods. Countering the expectation that the development of cities is exclusively controlled by architects, planners and developers, the book demonstrates that transformation is increasingly driven by communities. 

This event brings together the author and five of the people whose projects are discussed in his book. Each of them, through their ingenuity, commitment, and sometimes against all odds has made London a better place to live, learn and play. 

Jan Kattein, architect and author; Jane Riddiford, co-founder and honorary trustee at Global Generation; Jeffrey Lennon, director of the African Street Style Festival; Anurag Verma and Jon Broome, chair and advisor to the Rural Urban Synthesis Society; and Emily Bohill, co-chair of the Thornhill Primary School Foundation and founder of Run Kids Run are coming together to candidly reveal challenges, share moments of triumph and speak about the methods and motivations behind their work.

Join us for on evening of lively discussion and contribute your thoughts on how we might work together to scale up grass roots regeneration.
