Join us for the inaugural City of London Citizens Forum to held on the evening of Monday 15 January 2024 from 6.30-8.30pm at The University of Chicago Booth Business School’s London campus at One Bartholomew Close.

These informal monthly Citizen Forums are open to all residents of the City of London and will always be free to attend. They have a clear purpose to explore the City of London Corporation’s flagship policy – Destination City. The policy is designed to celebrate, promote, and support the Square Mile’s unrivalled history and heritage, its world-class arts and culture, restaurants and bars to UK and global visitors and all Londoners. It is intended to set out a vision for the Square Mile to become a world-leading leisure destination for visitors, workers, and residents to enjoy.

No-one knows and loves the square mile more than the residents who have to chosen to live here. With this in mind these informal forums, held on the third Monday of every month in venues around the City, will seek to explore the views of residents and harness the skills and knowledge of residents as we plan how best to use Destination City to create a vibrant and fabulous City in which to work, visit and live in.

In exploring different venues across the City we’ll discover some of the hidden treasures within the City and discovering some of the extraordinary opportunities available to workers, visitors and residents.

The Forums are personally organised and where necessary funded by the Resident Representative on the City Envoy Network, Brendan Barns, Common Councilman for Farringdon Within. He has lived in the City of London for over 25 years and loves it! If you’d like to help with organising the Citizen Forums or have ideas for Destination City you can contact him by email at [email protected]
