NextGen is an NLA initiative which identifies and supports young talent within the industry, and champions the professional development of the built environment’s future leaders. NextGen members are profiled in 50% of the full NLA programme, creating many opportunities to showcase new ideas and projects to the wider NLA network.

A programme of focused NextGen events connects young professionals with peers in the industry, allowing them to expand professional networks and develop skills; informal PechaKucha presentations provide a forum to profile new ideas, projects and initiatives, while mentoring events and talks with professionals offer advice and information on working in a multi-disciplinary industry.

NextGen is roughly aimed at those who are 2-5 years into their career or aged between 25-35.

NextGen mission 

  • Champion the new generation of industry experts
  • Connect emerging talent with established industry professionals
  • Encourage excellence within the built environment industry
  • Analyse what the future skill set of the built environment industry might look like 
If you'd like to be involved in the NextGen programme of events, please email Lucie Murray.
