At London Higher, we are calling on whoever becomes the next Mayor of London to harness the power of London’s higher education institutions, both in helping to lead the green, skills-based and jobs-led recovery that our capital and our country need and showcasing the sector’s successes to bolster London’s attractiveness around the globe.
