In 2016 London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park was the setting for the first Shell Powering Progress Together (PPT) forum in the UK which brought together academics, business people, think tanks, social psychologists and youth representatives to discuss ways to help society make a transition towards a low-carbon future. The forum, hosted by Shell CEO, Ben van Beurden, took place during Make the Future Live  - Shell’s four-day festival of ideas and innovation.

The dates for 2017 are now confirmed and PPT will return to the Olympic Park on Thursday 25 May.  It will again take place during Make the Future Live.
