2021 Future Forums

The new Future Forum Series: “An Awkward Dialogue” brings together a cohort of big thinkers to examine some of the important and sensitive challenges affecting the growth cities of the West. It’s been designed to unpack the tough issues and bring forward ideas that can generate change through an honest, robust engagement with a diverse group of senior stakeholders. While such difficult discussions are best had discreetly under “Chatham House Rules”, away from the glare of media and the theatre of politics, the outcomes certainly will help guide our subsequent public advocacy.
