How are you communicating the benefits of Car Free Day to Londoners?

I will be hosting an event called ‘Reimagine’ on Car Free Day. A wide range of fun and inclusive activities will enable Londoners to see our city from a new perspective and to reflect on the benefits of our streets being less dominated by cars. It will promote sustainable travel, improvements to air quality and a reduction in car use.

At least 19 London boroughs are also participating in Car Free Day this year - either by hosting their own events and/or supporting residents to organise Play Streets. Through active and coordinated participation in Car Free Day across London, we can effectively demonstrate and communicate the benefits.
