Innovation in transport is happening in global cities all over the world, from human-carrying drones in Dubai, to an experimental high-tech new district in Toronto, but what is transforming London’s mobility and what new ideas are reshaping how we think about transport in the capital?

This event will invite speakers to present live projects, new ideas and blue-sky thinking, hearing from London’s built environment and transport experts, both established and NextGen, providing a forum for new solutions to our future transport needs.

The format, Pecha Kucha (ペチャクチャ), was devised in Tokyo in 2003 by the English architect Mark Dytham and has turned into a massive global celebration of design, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. The format makes presentations concise, keeps things moving at a rapid pace and holds its audience.
