Base London 2014, The Guildhall, 26 June
London's rapidly growing population need places to live and opportunities to work; people and stuff need to move around; the lights need to stay on and waste needs to be dealt with. Add to this the impacts of climate change and the transition to a low-carbon economy, and it's pretty clear that business as usual is not a long-term option.
Base London addresses how London prepares itself for the future. It looks at the major challenges, how they interact and the innovations and solutions for solving what in many instances are new, complex and multi-faceted problems.
If we treat each in isolation we will fail. If we approach the next phase of London's development by doing things a bit better and bit more sustainably we will probably still fail on a number of levels. The smart money is pointing towards viewing the city as a series of interconnected systems, in which its assets are planned, designed and function in a more joined-up and synergistic way.
Businesses, organisations and the public sector responsible for investing in and shaping London's future built environment and infrastructure need to understand these changes, assess the impact on their business models and forge new relationships with potential new collaborators.
Base London gives you an opportunity to understand the big picture drivers as London seeks to strengthen its resilience as a global city. And of course this is a major opportunity for long-term value creation at both the individual company level and the societal.
For 2014, the Guildhall provides a prestigious central London location with the potential to attract a City-focused audience, creating what we believe to be the best opportunity yet to bring together the people with the influence to promote, fund, design and deliver a resilient and future-proof London.
