CFO Centenary Lectures

In October 2020, we kicked off CFO’s 100th anniversary celebrations in fine style, with a series of online Centenary Lectures. Three prominent broadcasters, academics, and politicians – Anneliese Dodds MP, Will Hutton, and Dr Friederike Otto – set out their visions for meeting the key challenges of the present and creating truly sustainable future communities.

150 attendees dropped in to watch ‘CFO TV’ and ask some very cogent questions.  If you missed it, don’t worry – you can watch the talks below.

Will Hutton – the challenges and opportunities of post-COVID-19 Britain


Dr Fredi Otto – the role of communities in meeting the systemic change demanded by the Climate Emergency


Anneliese Dodds MP – how to make housing work for communities both locally and nationally
