Will Lewisham 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 Lewisham to do their bit.

That’s why we developed specific, personalised 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.

Meet Your Climate Champion

I have been using my bicycle in London for many years. I take the ease of mobility for granted. ‘Isn’t it dangerous?… I could never do that’ is often the reaction I get from people who do not cycle. There is a step change in attitude but there is still a long way to go. By becoming a Climate Safe Streets Champion, I can help change this view.
