Living Streets is hosting their annual Best Practice Event to showcase great examples of active travel schemes and innovative practices across our capital that support a shift to walking as a mode of transport.

Out of Office? How London is living with hyrbid working

November 21, 2022 18:30

Cost:  Free

The pandemic changed how so many of us work, and Londoners have been at the forefront of this shift.

Hybrid working – where people split their week between the office and home – has been embraced by Londoners at higher rates than the rest of the UK.

But what are its broader implications? From demand for the transport network, to the market for office space and the services sector in centre of the city, changes in commuting patterns will have far-reaching consequences for the capital.

And while it’s clearly popular, what is it people really value with this new approach to work? Are there winners and losers? And is hybrid here to stay?

In this joint event we will explore these questions and more, as Central London Forward reveal findings from new research by Arup, and the Policy Institute and King’s Business School will present new research from their Work/Place: London returning project.

Building lives, and bringing life to buildings

September 22, 2022 12:00

Cost:  Free

On September 22, Molly Pritchard, Social Investment Officer at the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Martine Corbett, Training Programme and Social Value Manager at Willmott Dixon, and Maria Roye, Head of Learning at the London Learning Consortium come together in an online #PXConversation to discuss the creation and running of North Kensington’s Building Lives Academy.

Aimed at young residents aged 16-25 from Kensington and Chelsea, and the surrounding boroughs, the Willmott Dixon Building Lives Academy is an eight-week pre-employment programme, which provides local young people with qualifications and work experience for a career in construction or logistics. The fully funded course provides learners with a range of qualifications including Level 1 certificates in Basic Construction Skills and Employability Skills, and the option to take courses in Digital Skills, Maths and English. Learners also complete work experience with Willmott Dixon at one of the Council’s new home construction sites in the borough.

The council-owned premises, which were previously empty, have been provided to Willmott Dixon under a social investment lease. This means that RBKC provides the property at a reduced rent, and in return the academy trains young people from the borough and helps them to access employment. As a result, this project both activates a previously vacant council-owned building and trains the next generation of people who will develop the borough’s built environment in the future.

In this conversation, moderated by RBKC’s Michael Blake, we will get to hear how this project came about from the people that made it happen. We will talk about social value and collaboration, and shine a light on some of the methods that the team have used to overcome challenges along the way.

In conversation:

Maria Roye, Traineeship and Employer Engagement Manager at London Learning Consortium Community (LLC): Maria has worked at London Learning Consortium Training Provider for several years, advising and supporting young people and older adults to help them move into a career or make a next step in their professional development. Having worked in many schools and colleges, Maria is a qualified and experienced professional who oversees the Building Lives Construction Programme in Kensal Road W10.

Molly Pritchard, Social Investment Officer, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea: Molly joined Kensington and Chelsea Council in October 2020 as part of the National Graduate Development Programme. The Building Lives Academy was one of the first projects she led as a graduate.

Martine Corbett, Training Programme Manager, Willmott Dixon

Moderated by:

Michael Blake, Head of Social Investment, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea: Michael leads and manages RBKC’s social investment work: shaping the organisation’s social investment strategy, managing their social investment projects and leases, designing investment opportunities and sharing learning.

Cost:  Free

What do high streets, universities & higher education colleges have in common? Come along to an in-person forum discussion on the opportunities and challenges of institution-led high street regeneration, hosted by Hassell and London Higher.

Universities and higher education colleges often have facilities on high streets and in town centres, or a desire to be physically present in these places. Historically, the motivation has been to ensure accessibility and visibility of the institution, but today we are seeing a shift towards a much more holistic approach to place management, seeking to integrate student life and learning with the public experience.

In this in-person forum, hosted by Hassell with London Higher, we will discuss the opportunities and challenges of institution-led high street regeneration. This forum can seat up to 18 stakeholders.

CRP, with consultants DSDHA, will be launching brand new guidance: Highways and Footways Accessibility Guidelines. The Guidelines outline recommendations to make fully accessible streets that do not just adhere to minimum standards, but that also make a conscious effort to establish spaces that are generous in design. It has never been more important to consider a wide variety of accessible measures in our built environment. With the Mayor’s commitment to accessibility through strategies such as Inclusive London, the guidance contributes to the wider aims of Vision Zero, Healthy Streets and London’s green economic recovery.

Delivering London will be presenting on their latest initiative, which is all about reducing emissions and congestion through consolidation of parcels deliveries in a dense locker network that respects all users of streets.

The hub will improve access to street space by co-ordinating deliveries, limiting kerb-side activity and tackling poor air quality. Better Bankside members can redirect bulk deliveries to the centre, which the BID will store on a short-term basis, delivering the quantity needed with an ultra-low or zero-emission vehicle such as an electric van or a cargo bike. The Green Logistics Centre aims to turn weekly deliveries into monthly ones.

Do you want to know how much carbon you or your business can save by making changes like switching to an electric vehicle or bike? ⚡

Take a look at out Clean Air Tool to find out how much of a difference you can make (link in bio ⬆️)

For example, the Clean Air Tool ...calculated that during 2021, the #CleanAirVillages project saved 151kg of PM2.5 from entering the atmosphere. That’s the same as the emissions from 726 football pitch-sized forest fires and would require 6,164.7 trees to take all of those pollutants in! 🌳
