London Talks Programme

London Talks Programme (PDF)

London is experiencing important changes: the new London Plan, Brexit, the housing crisis, the proliferation of short-term letting and climate change. Many of these issues are not local to London or to the United Kingdom.  Cities across the world are experiencing pressure from increasing house prices, marked increases in short-term letting and the spectre of climate change.

Our new seminar series London Talks creates a space to exchange knowledge on these changes linking them to LSE’s research. In so doing, we aim to create partnerships with significant London stakeholders and show how research and practice in London link to cities across the world.
