Debates and talks
The Late Debate will explore social behaviour and mapping with over 15 speakers and panellists on four keynote debates:
- Design values: Six industry experts will have just five minutes to present their case on continued public investment in transport design - after which you, the audience, can interrogate the panel.
- Data - risk or reward?: Some see boundless possibilities while others see risk and exploitation. During this very interactive debate, smart city open data experts will argue about whether the risk is worth the reward.
- The big squeeze: London’s population is set to increase from 8.4 million to around 10 million by 2030. In this debate the audience become dragons in a den of leading industry experts who will pitch their ideas for innovation and solutions to the Big Squeeze.
Charlie Parker, Director and Transport Sector Lead, Movement Strategies will be put in the hot seat for the night.
- Tube map challenge: Join Professor Max Roberts, internationally renowned professor of psychology and mapping expert, in conversation with Londonist Video Journalist, Geoff Marshall, as they take the audience on a journey through the creative opportunities, flaws and psychology of maps.
