London’s streets during the last year have seen changes made in a bid to respond quickly to the growing concerns the pandemic brought. But what are the strategies across London that support a people-centric approach in our streets? How will the past year experience influence strategic planning and new initiatives that support pedestrians across the capital? 
 
As we approach a pivotal point in easing out of a national lockdown, how can we make sure the pedestrian focus remains a priority and what does it mean for creating and sustaining healthier, active streets for the future? In what ways do London’s streets need to adapt to facilitate pedestrians and people-centric design?
 
This webinar looks at how our streets can maintain and support a pedestrian focused city. From reflections of the past year to new proposals being develop, we present case studies and approaches for London’s streets.
