The hope is that, as we emerge from the pandemic, our high streets will return to the bustling places they were. But beneath the bustle an intense competition is taking place for access and space: walking, shopping, eating and drinking, parking, loading, sitting etc.
We’re deliberately seeking two distinct perspectives on this issue in order to illuminate it:
- Mário Alves is Secretary-General of the International Federation of Pedestrians and a long-time advocate of providing good facilities for walkers. Mário will draw on work he’s doing as part of the Horizon-2020 MORE project as well as his broader experience.
- John Crosk has been involved with Brewery Distribution for over 40 years. These days he is Vice Chairman of The Brewery Logistics Group (responsible for over 75% of London beer deliveries) and manages the Central London Freight Quality Partnership, which brings together London boroughs and freight operators.
Between them, our speakers know a lot about the subject under discussion and we look forward to a stimulating discussion, perhaps even a bit of a debate?
Walking@Tea-Time is a joint initiative of London Living Streets and the Active Travel Academy at University of Westminster
