The Mayor of London wants London to be the world’s greenest global city, this will mean making it greener, cleaner and ready for the future. On 11 August Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, published his draft London Environment Strategy. The Mayor is taking a range of actions to improve the environment now, setting London on the path to create a better future.
Along with Imperial College London and the Greater London Authority, we organised this successful event to explore new ways of collaboration focused on air quality, extreme weather resilience, and flooding.
