Mission & values
The vision of the Active City Network (ACN) is for the City Corporation to work in partnership with City employers to create a safe, harmonious and healthy environment for travelling by active modes in the Square Mile.
The ACN will establish a communication channel for businesses to engage and motivate their workforce and deliver behaviour change. Additionally, it will give City employers an opportunity to shape future policy, freight and transport management strategies and physical infrastructure changes.
Alderman Alison Gowman
Chairman of the ACN
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.
