  • Brenda Puech on the pedestrian experience and coping strategies for crossing the road
  • Daniel Cooper on why we need fewer car parks and more parks
  • Darren Reynolds on promoting cycling to children
  • George Weeks from TfL on valuing the urban realm
  • Graham Freer on how a series of ‘connected cities’ might accommodate London’s growing population
  • Jenny Bates on proposals for new river crossings in east London
  • Jon Irwin on his DIY guide for transforming your high street
  • Julia Day on the Open Streets London project
  • Katharine Hibbert on why we need a revival in hitchhiking
  • Rosie Tharp on how the Canal and River Trust is managing the growing numbers of users of ‘London’s greatest park’
  • Dr William Bird on how Beat the Street aims to get more children walking to school

Presentations will start at 7pm, and Look Mum No Hands will be open as usual beforehand for food and drink.
