21st Century Challenges events

Informed discussion from the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG). Additional content is available on the 21st Century Challenges website.

Coming up:

London: too big to succeed?

  • Tuesday 15 September 2015, 7.00pm - 8.30pm
  • 21st Century Challenges panel discussion

London competes on a global stage, but what price does its infrastructure pay for doing so? With growing pressure on housing, transport and public services, is it time to rethink growth in the capital?

 


Cities, growth and rebalancing the UK economy

  • Wednesday 21 October 5.00pm - 8.30pm
  • 21st Century Challenges: Policy Forum

Successive governments have tried to ‘rebalance’ spatial economic growth in the UK. How can policy-makers ensure that plans for a ‘Northern Powerhouse’ really address the ‘north-south divide’? What will this mean for other city regions?

 


Ready for impact?

  • Tuesday 10 November 2015 7.00pm - 8.30pm
  • 21st Century Challenges panel discussion

We live in a rapidly changing world. How can our communities become more resilient to physical, environmental and social changes? Are there important adaptation lessons from the past we can apply to the future?

 


Resilient communities

  • Tuesday 17 November 6.00pm–8.30pm
  • 21st Century Challenges: Policy Forum

An evening seminar and dinner discussion to promote knowledge exchange between the geographical community, practitioners and policy-makers.
