Mission & values
The vision of the Active City Network is to work in partnership with City employers to create a safe, harmonious and healthy environment for travelling by active modes in the Square Mile.
Over 513,000 people are employed in the City of London. Working with our members, we shape campaigns, transport strategies and infrastructure changes in the Square Mile.
The aim of the Active City Network is to establish a communication channel to both talk to, and get feedback from, employers about initiatives planned in the City of London to support safer commuting. Through the Network we can provide training and encouragement for workers to enjoy a safer, more active journey to work.
More staff walking and cycling more often has many benefits around improved fitness & health, air quality and productivity.
Join the Active City Network to access exclusive services and work together to improve our streets.

Alderman Alison Gowman
Chair of the Active City Network
One of the strengths of the Active City Network is that we, as individuals, employees and employers are all moving towards a common vision. A vision of a world class city, where everyone that lives, works and visits can travel in a safe and healthy environment.
My involvement in this initiative continues to be driven by the knowledge that collaboration leads to solutions which can create a better future and that will lead to a City that thrives and celebrates healthier living.
The new Mayor of London’s Transport Strategy outlines a Healthy Streets Approach which the City endorses, and a Vision for zero fatal or serious injuries. Achieving this ambition within such a busy Square Mile will require many stakeholders to work together and bringing them together is the role of the Active City Network.
Through this collaborative approach, I hope that you all recognise that everyone has a role in the current and future success of the City.
We look forward to making a difference to our City’s future with your help and support.
