The Changing City
17 September 18.00-21.00
Series: Urbanisation Forum
Venue: London County Hall, Westminster Bridge Road, London SE1 7PB

The Urbanisation Forum is back! Join the Swedish Chamber at new member hotel, London County Hall on the 17 September for an evening focusing on the Changing City!

The Changing City brings together senior representatives from Scania, Securitas, White ArkitekterScanProp and Gunnebo to discuss the global challenge of growing cities. From security to infrastructure, to development, this is an excellent opportunity to meet with other business people, politicians and other influential individuals who wish to share experiences, supply information on their respective areas, and of course, make the most of high value networking!

In 1800, barely 3% of the world’s populations lived in cities. Fast forward to 2015, and we see a +50% of populations living in urban areas worldwide, and an incredible +80% in countries such as the United Kingdom and Sweden. In short, cities have grown at an incredible rate, and they also keep on evolving and changing in order to match demands from the people and businesses who reside within its boundaries, and outside. From an increased movement of people, to the need for cities to renew and redevelop and refresh, this evening hopes to explore the phenomenon of urbanisation by looking at how it is changing cities such as London and Stockholm – what are we seeing today and what can we expect for the future. Do not miss out!

The evening will finish with drinks, canapes and networking.
