UEL Seminar Series ‘Beyond 2012’

UEL Seminar Series

Beyond 2012: the Olympics and the Regeneration of East London

Organised by the University of East London and held at the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC), Stratford, London

The aim of the seminars is to create a knowledge platform that may inform the longer term social, economic and cultural development of the area. The seminars will discuss and debate the issues arising in the shaping of place in one of the world’s leading global cities.
The seminars address a series of questions, including: Are there any broader, longer term plans for East London to maximise the Olympic contribution to the city’s expansion eastwards? What else is happening, or should be happening, to deliver the better quality of life to local residents? Who is responsible for drawing up and managing such a plan? What roles should the public and private sectors and international investors play in the expansion of the city eastwards?
