Jeremy Leach and Emma Griffin from Action Vision Zero are longstanding campaigners for safer, people-friendly streets and roads. We believe that what works to reduce and eliminate casualties is already well known. Our aim is to make this knowledge freely available to campaigners.
Action Vision Zero is funded by the Foundation for Integrated Transport. Thanks to their support, all our services are free to campaigners.
Jeremy has campaigned for a fairer balance between people and motor vehicles for more than 15 years. As a member of the Southwark Living Streets, the group worked to encourage Southwark to introduce a borough-wide 20mph speed limit which was finally confirmed in 2012.
Since that time Jeremy has been the London campaign co-ordinator for 20’s Plenty for Us working with campaigners across London along with councillors, the boroughs, TfL and the GLA on the introduction of 20mph limits and improving compliance with them. More recently, policy has evolved rapidly with the adoption of Vision Zero targets.
Jeremy is also chair of London Living Streets which was formed in August 2016 to speak up for people on foot across London and which is made up of London’s many local Living Streets groups.
Emma’s interest in sustainable urban transport, active travel and the environment began as a journalist 15 years ago, writing for titles and organisations including Traffic Engineering & Control, CNN.com, Ethical Corporation and the Future Laboratory.
Following a MSc in Urban Studies at UCL, that focussed on the interaction between people, place and traffic, Emma devoted her time to campaigning for active travel and healthy streets. Emma is also vice chair of London Living Streets, campaigning on issues such as road safety, bringing life back to the kerbside and car-free living.
