Our Future London – Emerging Economies and Green Business Seminar

London Sustainability Exchange (LSx), in collaboration with Siemens, is holding a series of “provocation seminars” on Mayor Sadiq Khan’s first six months in office. The second seminar, “Our Future London – Emerging Economies and Green Business Seminar”, will take place Thursday, 8 September, from 6pm to 8.30pm in the Royal Victoria Docks area of Docklands (see bottom of article for venue details).

The series aims to develop and inform the Mayor’s vision for London, bringing together representatives of the public, private and voluntary sectors to develop innovative new approaches that aim to help secure the capital’s future.

The event will cover the themes of emerging economies, social entrepreneurship and community energy.

Participants will have the chance to debate the significant issues faced by London and its communities;  hear “provocations” from thought leaders about what is already happening; establish commitments to further action; contribute to the development of London’s future vision; and network with like-minded, influential people.

Event format

There will be two guest speakers, each with extensive experience in the field. One will deliver a “provocation”, the other will respond. The speeches will be followed immediately by a Q&A session and the chance for debate. Minutes will be recorded graphically by “More than Minutes”.
