Good London is a non-partisan project funded by the Trust for London to start a conversation about the kind of city Londoners want to live in as we head for elections in may.
What kind of city do you want to live in?
It is important that mayoral candidates share their ideas, visions and proposals with us. But it is equally – if not more important – that our future leaders listen to us. So Good London is about asking: What is your vision for this city? How do you think power should be organised? What about housing and transport? What do you think about inequality? How does money work? What about migration and moving in and through our city? Can citizens participate more in decisions that impact our lives? Do you want to?
This is a space for you to share your ideas and help shape the conversation about London.
Good London is collecting ideas from individuals and civil society groups from across London to start creating a shared story of what our city could be. You can see some of these ideas and add your own here.
On Saturday April 9th, we will come together for We the City to iron out these ideas and turn them into more concrete proposals, to learn from each other and from cities around the world, and to have a frank conversation between hopeful mayors and hopeful Londoners about this great city that we all call home.
A final version of a Londoner’s vision for London will be created the week after April 9th to share with candidates standing to be Mayor and to join the Greater London Assembly and make sure they are listening to London’s voices. It will offer a blueprint for the conversation to continue beyond the elections and to hold our next Mayor and Assembly members to account. London is our city, and we need to make sure it becomes a city that puts all of us first.
Join the conversation and create a #GoodLondon.
