Will Islington Council deliver #ClimateSafeStreets?

2022-2026 is a vital stage in London’s zero-carbon journey. Motor vehicles are the largest and most stubborn source of London’s emissions, and borough councils control 95% of the city’s roads. We need all our councils to act in the next four years and be bold – or it’ll be too late to get to zero carbon roads by 2030. That’s what’s needed for London and Islington to do their bit.

That’s why we developed five asks for each London borough council in the 2022 council elections to cut road transport emissions fast and enable lots more walking, cycling and wheeling.

I believe that cycling is a beautiful way to navigate and connect with a city. Done safely, cycling is a climate friendly mode of transport that brings personal joy. Policies that support climate safe streets are a long-term solution to climate change. As a #ClimateSafeStreets Champion, I aim to learn about the barriers to sustainable transport for all and how I may play a role in the solution.
