  • How will London change over the next five decades?
  • Can the capital adapt to deal with the impacts of climate change? 
  • What are the challenges and opportunities will present themselves over the 50 years following the Olympics?

The UCL London 2062 project is considering these, and many other, questions about the capital’s future by bringing the UCL community together with policy makers and practitioners from a wide range of fields, and exploring visions for London’s future.

The London 2062 project is currently in the process of producing an anthology of new work that addresses London’s future. The book will include academic writing, opinion pieces and illustrations. As well as this, we want to include contributions from the brightest young minds in the country: UCL students.

We are seeking innovation and original thinking on the topic. Your entry can be an image or up to 1,000 words that addresses the theme of “London 2062”. You can even combine the two, 500 words and an image. The only limitations are that you must be a student at UCL, the submission must be your own original work and it must not violate anyone’s copyright. We are prepared to receive essays, poetry, photographs, drawings, paintings, story-boards or anything else that can be included in a book*.

All entries will be considered for inclusion in the book, as well as the London 2062 exhibition at UCL and the websites for London 2062 and the UCL Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities. If selected, the work will be included with a full attribution. Submitting an entry grants unlimited rights to UCL to reproduce the work under the author’s name in any other medium. You will, however, retain copyright for any work that you submit.

If you are a student at UCL, undergraduate or postgraduate, full-time or part time, then you are eligible to enter the London 2062 Student Competition.

  • All submissions should be made by emailing london-2062@ucl.ac.uk.
  • The deadline for entries is 23 April 2012
  • All successful applicants will be informed of the results by 25 May 2012

* If you have an entry that cannot be presented in text or as an image, such as audio or video, it can be submitted for inclusion in the London 2062 exhibition and for inclusion on our websites www.ucl.ac.uk/london-2062/ or  www.ucl.ac.uk/sustainable-cities/

The Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities and London 2062

London 2062 is one of the cross-UCL interdisciplinary activities commissioned by the UCL Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities. The Grand Challenges are part of UCL’s commitment to use its vast range of expertise to improve humanity's circumstances. The underlying philosophy of the UCL Grand Challenges programme (which also includes challenges for Global Health, Intercultural Interactions and Human Wellbeing) is that solutions to complex and systemic problems emerge only when different kinds of expertise and methodologies are brought together: that our collective wisdom is greater than the sum of our expertise.
