After Crossrail2, what should be the next priority for London's transport infrastructure? How will new technology help us plan for a better city? What social and economic trends are going to affect the capital’s development? Where will the population of 11 million+ live and work? Decisions that are made now will shape the London of 2050 - but with so many ‘unknown unknowns’ how can we plan for 30 years' time? This panel discussion, held in association with CityMetric, the New Statesman's online urbanism magazine, will examine what the capital might look like mid-way through this century. Speakers include Jeremy Skinner of the GLA, Neil Bennett of Farrell’s, Rose Grayston of Shelter, Nicole Badstuber of the UCL Transport Institute, and the discussion will be chaired by Jonn Elledge of CityMetric. If you want to know how London might evolve in the next three decades, or if you have opinions you’d like to share, come along to what will be a fascinating debate on our possible futures.
