    Speaker(s): Professor Ricky Burdett, Cllr Muhammed Butt, Amica Dall, Cllr Georgia Gould | The tensions between economic growth, social inclusion and environmental sustainability are putting London, like other global cities, under pressure.

Muhammed Butt (@MAsgharButt2) is Leader of Brent Council. Amica Dall (@Assemblestudio) is one of the directors of Assemble, a democratically run architecture, art and design practice. Georgia Gould (@Georgia_Gould) is Leader of Camden Council and Deputy Leader of London Councils. Tony Travers is Associate Dean of the School of Public Policy and Director of LSE London, LSE.
