We are re-launching #Street Talks, a series of free events about sustainable transport and the best use of public spaces.

The first event in the series will take place at Look Mums No Hands! cafe in central London on Wednesday 22 February, at 6pm-8pm.

It will feature London’s Deputy Mayor for Transport, Val Shawcross CBE, who will present Mayor’s vision for ‘Healthy Streets’ in the capital, followed by a Q+A with the audience.

Chaired by Dermot Finch, Director of Prince’s Trust in London and the South of England, it will also be an introduction to Dr Will Norman, the newly appointed Walking and Cycling Commissioner.

A space for inspiring discussions

Matt Winfield, Acting Director for Sustrans in London said: “We’re excited to be re-launching Street Talks and welcoming Val Shawcross and Will Norman on the first night. “The event will focus on the Mayor’s new ‘Healthy Streets’ agenda and particularly what this means for cycling and walking, as well as the wide-ranging implications for everyone in the capital. 

“Through these talks, we are able to provide a space for inspiring and thought-provoking discussions about how we can make our city a better place to live, work and move around. We hope Street Talks will cement its profile as a key event for anyone with an interest in the way people use streets and public spaces in London.”

Street talks were historically run by the Movement for Liveable London. For updates on this event and future events, follow the #StreetTalks hashtag.
