Have your say on London's Recovery
The London Recovery Board is seeking input into how London can recover following the pandemic.
Your views are needed on the 7 missions that will steer the strategy for London’s recovery. These missions are described more fully in the background documents for the Community Conversations but in summary they are:
MISSION 1: Good work for all Londoners.
Mission: “No Londoner, particularly those disproportionately affected by the pandemic or Brexit, is left without access to education, training or a job opportunity.”
MISSION 2: A Green New Deal
Mission: “Increase the size of London’s green economy by 2030 to accelerate job creation and to drive a fair and inclusive recovery from Covid-19 that tackles the climate emergency, eradicates air pollution and builds long-term, community-led resilience.”
MISSION 3: Digital access for all
Mission: “Every Londoner to have access to connectivity, basic digital skills and digital employment opportunities and support by 2025.”
MISSION 4: 15 minute cities – the city on your doorstep
Mission: “Thriving, inclusive and resilient high streets and town centres in every London borough with culture, diverse retail and jobs within walking distance of all Londoners.”
MISSION 5: A strong civil society
Mission: “All Londoners can play an active role in their communities; making London a more equal and inclusive city post COVID-19.”
MISSION 6: A robust safety net
Mission: “A robust safety net, a good standard of living and the tools to thrive.”
MISSION 7: A new deal for young people
Mission: “Every young Londoner to have the best start in life; to be happy, safe, fulfilled & ambitious – focussing on those facing the greatest barriers to realising their potential.”
If you are interested and want to run community conversations to input your views then you can access funding from the Greater London Authority (GLA) to do so. You can run a community conversation in various ways such as hosting an online conversation, through surveys or telephone conversations. The GLA has also produced a toolkit to assist with how to run the conversations.
The deadline is 4 September 2020 so activities will need to take place soon.

The GLA is also running two information sessions on how to run Community Conversations. To attend click on either date below to register.
