Afternoon breakout sessions

1) Connected communities

People are increasingly expecting to interact with their council in ways that reflect the latest developments in the digital world.  In this session our panel will discuss the use of technology, data and information to transform the way services are delivered to the people we serve. We look at examples of how boroughs are using digital technology and discuss why understanding the lives of our service users is critical to successful innovation.


2) Tackling air pollution in our boroughs

It has been estimated that over 9,400 deaths in London can be attributed to air pollution every year, with the major source being road transport. In this session, we bring together speakers from across the spectrum of debate - from public health to transport - and ask what can boroughs do to clean up our dirty air and protect residents?


3) Housing supply solutions

This breakout looks at how local authorities are working with the private sector to provide more affordable housing and housing for low-cost rent.  Our speakers discuss creative solutions to increasing the supply of homes using borough resources and working with external providers.
