The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has established an Infrastructure Young Professionals Panel (YPP) that brings together young leaders in the infrastructure and development sectors to contribute to his work programme on infrastructure.
The Mayor is tightly focused on improving how infrastructure is planned and delivered across London and is also seeking to address cross-cutting policy issues such as coordination, resilience, regulation, funding and financing, data and technological change. The London Infrastructure Plan 2050 was released in 2015 and serves as a foundation for much of this work programme.
The Panel will complement the Mayor’s Infrastructure High Level Group, made up of CEO’s of London’s leading infrastructure providers.
The Panel will support the Mayor by:
- providing direct advice and input into active projects being progressed by the Growth and Infrastructure Unit of the Mayor’s office
- working collectively to undertake a programme of work to research, uncover and articulate a future vision for London’s infrastructure that will act as a precursor to the next London Infrastructure Plan
- acting as ambassadors on behalf of the Mayor’s infrastructure and sustainable development agenda
- devising and implementing a programme of engagement with other young professionals across industry, to promote dialogue and generate innovative thinking on London’s future infrastructure
