2018 Rethinking Smart Futures

In compiling the Rethinking Smart Futures Report, the authors drew on a series of five roundtable events held in London between June and December 2018. As part of Interchange, London Transport Museum’s ongoing series of well-informed discussions and debates, where leading thinkers and decision-makers consider the challenges and opportunities facing cities, transport and infrastructure, today and tomorrow. Each of these four sessions focused on a specific area of impact from technological change: transport, cities, work, and cyber security.

2017 Rethinking Urban Mobility

Over the course of 2017, the Interchange programme at London Transport Museum, in collaboration with Arup, Gowling WLG and Thales UK, sought to drive a conversation around some of these issues and to focus attention on the speed and complexity of the changes occurring in the sector. The resulting report and events reflected on these conversations and some of the different views that emerged. Click the links below to read more about each event.
