Health & Communities

Communities

How our local community interacts can shape our lives. As can how we feel going about our lives in other parts of our city. 

London should be a city where all can access and experience facilities, skills, and opportunities. This is the space to talk about what brings people together and achieves accessibility, equality and harmony.

Trees are the lungs of London

Communities

As trees filter pollutants from the air they are essential to improving the air quality of London.

2 suggestions:

Public Health England reports that physical activity declines with age so much that by the age of 75 years only one in ten men and one in 20 women are active enough to maintain good health, but we know that there are lots of Londoners who buck this trend.
