The next 200 years: What will London look like in 2218? London

About this event

We are on the verge of a digital transformation in the way civil engineers and others plan and deliver the city’s infrastructure. We are also likely to see a revolution in the way people move around and interact with the city.

Advances in digital engineering provide an unprecedented opportunity to advance our ways of working and transform the city at the same time. It is essential that we understand what the digital future is likely to hold and how the role of civil engineers will change as a result.

In this lecture we will hear the thoughts of leading professionals and academics on what the future London may look like.
