Living Streets works to bring our streets to life, with more walking in people-friendly public spaces.
They were formed in 1929, as the Pedestrians Association, and have grown to include a network of 98 branches and affiliated groups, 40 local authority members and a growing number of corporate supporters. As well as working to influence policy on a national and local level, they also carry out a range of practical work to train professionals in good street design, and enable local communities to improve their own neighbourhoods. They also run high profile campaigns such as Walk to School and Walking Works, to encourage people to increase their walking levels and realise their vision of vibrant, living streets across the UK.
Living Streets work in Scotland is funded by the Scottish Government.
Living Streets Edinburgh is a volunteer-run local group, engaging with issues specific to Edinburgh.
