If any of you are in London on the evening of the 12th April, I have been kindly invited by Movement for Livable London (the brainchild of Joe Dunckley of At War with the Motorist) to give a talk Upstairs at The Yorkshire Grey, 2 Theobalds Road, WC1X 8PN at 7pm (bar open 6pm). It is billed as…
Jim Davis, Cycling Embassy of Great Britain: I want what they’re having – how the rest of the world is achieving a real cycling revolution
Movement for Liveable London promotes discussion on how a fairer, healthier, greener and more pleasant future for London can be achieved by changing the way we move around our city.
We aim to stimulate debate amongst citizens, campaigners, professionals and policy makers in the hope that together we might encourage politicians at all levels and of all persuasions to be more ambitious in their approach to sustainable movement and the design and management of London’s public realm.
We do this through hosting events, publishing articles and facilitating a dialogue between existing campaigns and other interested parties.
I’ve even convinced The Wife to come up to London too! I think what actually convinced her was me saying that I’d buy her drinks for the evening, however.
Other Street Talks worth checking out (probably more than mine) are as follows:
8th March 2011
Tom Barry, Boris Watch: State of the city – the highs and lows of London transport policy 2000 – 2011
4th May 2011
Dr Harry Rutter, Director of the National Obesity Observatory: Moving towards a healthier city – active travel and health
Andrew Cameron, Director of Urban Design, WSP: How to make great streets
Hope you can pop along to them. But mainly mine.
Meanwhile, on Embassy business, we now have a logo all the way from the Manchester Consulate, courtesy of the wonderful, if slightly unfortunately monikered, Mr Colostomy (concept) and Jim (Execution). I hope you like it as much as me. Bravo chaps and chapeau!
By the way, there is another Wheelers Brunch in Manchester going on tomorrow (Saturday 26th February and the last Saturday of the month thereafter) if you fancy meeting like minded people who love bikes as transport. Further details on the Natural Cycling: Manchester blog.
