UCL London 2062
As part of the UCL Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities, the London 2062 project is gathering evidence about the forces and factors that shape London, identifying decision points, and debating how the city will change over the five decades between London 2012 and London 2062. This process involves synthesising the diverse expertise within the academic community at UCL and elsewhere, together with London’s citizens, government, professions, artists, media and other public institutions.
Imagining the Future City: London 2062 (free download) is an edited collection based on the London 2062 project from UCL’s Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities. The London 2062 project engaged academics, policy makers and practitioners, providing a forum for serious debate about the challenges and opportunities for London in the five decades following the Olympics.
The book is divided into four sections, considering London in terms of Things, Connections, Power and Dreams. The book features contributions from leading academic thinkers at UCL and from those involved in shaping London on the ground, through policy and practice. The authors consider the future of London from multiple viewpoints, including transport, energy, smart infrastructure, water, population, housing and the economy.
The aim of this book, and the London 2062 programme, is to open discussion about the future of London. What is the future we want to see for London? Which priorities for a global city are in opposition? How can we meet carbon emission targets and deliver new infrastructure in the 21st Century?
London 2062 Symposium Series (held in 2012)
In 2012 UCL and Future of London (FoL) brought together a range of leading academics and practitioners to debate the actions required over the coming decades to ensure the delivery of a sustainable future for the capital.
Findings from the seminars will be made available throughout the programme by a number of briefing papers, the first of which can be downloaded below:
The London 2062 Symposium Series ran between March and April 2012.
