The future of London’s Open Workspaces

Monday 14 March 2016


Open Workspaces; incubators, coworking, artist and maker spaces, contribute vastly, not only to local communities, but to London’s economic diversity and future growth. This session asks: are we doing enough to support these spaces? What is their value within development, and can they address wider issues on the affordability and availability of space for small businesses?

Research being undertaken by IPPR is exploring the value of open workspaces to businesses and to the local and wider area. Watch the video as we bring together developers, planners, and discuss workspace providers’ future Agenda.

This event took place on February 25th 2016
