The aims of the events
As the 2012 London elections approach, London Civic Forum hosted a series of Listening Events through which we compiled the key priorities of our members in a number of different policy areas. The aim of these events was to generate consensus on some of the key priorities for the Mayor of London. This document will then be shared with the mayoral and London Assembly candidates as well as providing a useful tool or benchmark which London Civic Forum and/or others can use to review work of the future Mayor

To ensure that the events are as focused as possible, we asked participants to come prepared with a few key priorities which they could put forward. In order to establish the tone for the meeting, attendees received a comprehensive briefing by email. The listening events began with a short presentation outlining the powers and responsibilities of the Mayor in his or her occupancy.
