What's on at LSE London

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have decided to move our events online. All our events will be live streamed on Facebook. 

The LSE Regional and Urban Planning Studies programme teamed up with LSE London to organise the Progressing Planning series of events on housing, sustainability and advocacy. Progressing Planning aim is to bring back together alumni from the MSc programme and pairing them up with academics from LSE.
