About Us

Making London a liveable city, a walking city, an inclusive city, a healthy city and a safer city

London Living Streets is the London campaigning arm of Living Streets, the national charity for everyday walking. The group is dedicated to making London one of the world’s best cities for walking, a city that is genuinely inclusive of all its residents, workers and visitors and not just designed for car users.

London Living Streets campaigns for:

  • safer, healthier and less-polluted streets;
  • streets that welcome everyone on foot including children, older people and those with disabilities;
  • attractive and green public spaces;
  • low-traffic, liveable neighbourhoods that encourage children and adults to lead more active lifestyles.

London Living Streets was formed in 2016 to give walking campaigners across the capital a single voice. All of us are volunteers and include members of local Living Streets borough groups and individuals interested in these issues.

We aim to meet at least every other month and our meetings are a mix of ‘business’ meetings, public meetings with a guest speaker and walkabouts. Everyone interested in walking and becoming active in our campaigning is most welcome, so please get in touch!
