How to build a prosperous city: key workers in the community

Wednesday 17 March, 2021 | 18:00



Key workers are an invisible infrastructure of the city. They have earned attention during the coronavirus like never before. This event brings together London leaders championing key workers in the city to address:

  • What is urban prosperity and what part do key workers play in creating it?
  • How is individual and collective prosperity determined by the fabric of the city and its built environment?
  • What factors signal changes to urban prosperity, for the better or the worse?

Speaking on the topic will be:

  • Cllr Georgia Could, Leader, London Borough of Camden
  • Tom Copley, Deputy Mayor for Housing and Residential Development, City Hall
  • Arthur Kay, CEO of Skyroom and Chair of the Key Worker Homes Fund
  • (Chair) Professor Dame Henrietta Moore, Director of the Institute of Global Prosperity, UCL

The Key Worker Homes Fund online event series gives the stage to London local authority leaders, housing association heads, union chiefs, policy makers, economists and urbanists and asks them to share empathy, opinion, insight, and expertise. The three events are bound by the question: how can we improve the lives of key workers in our city?
