MInutes of the Leith Harbour and Newhaven Community Council ordinary meeting, held via Zoom on Tuesday 22 September 2020 at 7:30pm
Today Living Streets is launching its new five-year strategy (2020-2025).
It’s bold, ambitious and it reflects the changed world we find ourselves in. Walking is at its heart and we want to see three key outcomes:
- people choose walking
- better streets for walking
- all walks of life – we want walking to be for everyone.
The year 2020 has been a momentous one. Millions of people have rediscovered walking during the COVID-19 pandemic and governments across the UK have prioritised active travel.
But the pandemic has also highlighted the inadequacies of our walking environments, the stark inequalities in our local communities and the isolation and loneliness experienced by older adults.
This is the time for a walking movement to address these challenges.
We can only realise our vision with your continued support.
We need to keep building a powerful movement of people who will share their passion, time and money, to help us make walking safe, easy and attractive.
Walk with us!
