A number of studies highlighting the damaging effects of air pollution has recently circulated the media. One study found pollution now kills three times as many people worldwide as Aids, tuberculosis and malaria combined.

The plethora of health risks and the heightened risk they pose to children are clearly evidenced in multiple reports. It is no longer safe to sit and wait for those in power to save us, negligence and inaction on their behalf means thousands are choking. 

In response, we want:

  • A dramatic increase in the number of green spaces in London
  • More active forms of transport to be a priority
  • A dramatic expansion on today's low-pollution walking routes, cycle lanes and "quiet ways", creating traffic-free areas with green corridors
  • A reduction on our dependence on road transport
  • Walking, cycling and electrically powered transport to be the easiest options for getting about
  • Homes converted to non-solid-fuel heating systems such as gas boilers or heat pumps
  • Pushing businesses to reconsider their delivery systems
  • Management of agricultural burning and farming
  • Enforcing non-idling rules
