As the government negotiates the exit from the EU, how do we protect and ensure London's continued status as a global capital of built environment expertise?
London is the world’s leading exporter of built environment skills, the architecture sector alone was valued most recently at £1.7 billion. It is therefore critical that the freedom of movement and continued access to skills is considered priority. What can the industry do?
The London Mayor and UK Government must:
• Continue to attract and retain access to talent
• Recognise and promote London’s built environment expertise to the export market
• Make London an attractive and affordable place to live and work in the long term
• Create and reinforce links with other cities and provide a better voice for the profession
To further examine these recommendations to come out of the latest NLA Insight Study, London: Design Capital, NLA brings together a panel of international industry experts to assess what the long-term implications will be and what the industry can do to ensure London’s resilience as a design capital.
Taking place during the major exhibition, London: Design Capital
, this event is also a key part of NLA’s expanding International Dialogues programme
which is focused on connecting London with other major cities around the world in constructive dialogue about the future of cities.
