The demands of businesses and organisations are changing rapidly. What you learned in school doesn’t prepare you for real work-life situations with adequate skills. The City of London Corporation is keen to collectively define the skills needed to succeed and flourish now and into the future.

In response, the City has made a three-year commitment to convene an annual meeting of other London, national and international businesses, education sector, cultural venues and cities of innovation between 2019-2021.

The virtual Fusion 3 event hosted on 7 June 2021 was the third meeting of the series which brought ‘Fusion Cities’ together to explore fusion skills in the context of ‘accessibility and inclusivity‘.

‘Fusion Cities’ are places across the globe where there is a clear link between education, business and the cultural and creative sector. They are forward looking places with a focus on developing and enhancing skills needed now and in the future within an ethical context of social mobility and sustainability.

In 2021, Fusion 3 brought together these cities in a global event with hour-long sessions delivered directly by Fusion Cities partners from across the world. The Fusion Cities who hosted events were:

  • Sydney, hosted by the University of Technology, Sydney
