Make sure you get the most important book on London to be published this year!
What will happen to London in 2123? Will the City become a Venice-like heritage park for tourists?; or be an independent state? Could local food production feed the capital? How will we need to adapt to climate change? Will we become a techno-utopia, with Londoners’ lives in perfect harmony with Artificial Intelligence? How do we get a London that is fair and equitable for everyone?
Nothing is certain except that anything is possible.
One hundred years ago The London Society published 'London of the Future', a bold and visionary work, covering topics including city-centre airports and channel tunnels, as well as concerns about pollution, housing and access to public space.
We’ve created the second version. This new book sets out how our city could and should improve over the next century.
2023's London of the Future will offer dynamic 100-year thinking about how our city provides for all of its occupants and its role on a larger global stage. Each contribution highlights a key concern for London and ways in which it can be tackled.
This is the most important book on London to be published this year - support it to be a part of the debate about the future of our city.
