In a series of lectures and webinars, the Institution of Engineers will explore how prepared London is for three top threats. In the ‘Preparing London for Change’, ICE London will identify the issues that could threaten London in the future and will set out how the UK’s capital can prepare for them.
In the first lecture, a panel of experts will consider human threats, such as terrorism and cyber-attacks and what these new challenges mean for the built environment.
In the second lecture, experts will look at the environmental threats to London in the form of drought, flooding and heatwaves.
The third lecture will look at how resilience can be used as a springboard for redevelopment and place making.
These will be followed by webinars on the Environment Agency’s TE2100 Plan and on how London can prepare for increased energy demand.
