I’m pleased to announce that Sustrans are to take over the role of organising Street Talks. I’ve recently started working for Transport for London and as a result have decided to put the activities of Movement for Liveable London on hold. The website will stay live so that people can continue to access the Street Talks archive and other resources, and upcoming talks will continue to be advertised through the mailing list – you might also like to follow Sustrans London on Twitter.
I’d like to thank German, Matt and Nick at Sustrans for offering to keep Street Talks going. Much progress has been made in London since the talks began in March 2011, but there’s still a need for events that allow anyone with an interest to hear inspiring speakers and discuss the relationship between transport, public realm and liveability.
Details of the next Street Talks, which will explore the role of street closures in providing space for play, can be found here.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have attended past talks and in particular previous speakers – it’s fair to say that Movement for Liveable London and Street Talks would have been nothing without you.
