Momentum joins The Future Watches the Airport

11am, Monday 21st July
Meet at 10.30am at the Roz Café, Pier Parade, E16 2LJ (see map)


LONDON CITY AIRPORT wants to expand. In July Newham Council will decide whether to let them.

The Airport has already outgrown its Docklands location. More expansion will mean more noise, more air pollution and more heavy traffic in the streets near the airport. 

Meanwhile proposals to revive the Royal Docks by replacing the airport with sustainable developments are gathering support: http://www.neweconomics.org/publications/entry/royal-docks-revival 

On Monday 21st July at 11am - the week that Newham Council will make their decision - action group The Future we will go and watch the airport. 

The Momentum Project will join them in drawing a circle around our eyes to show that we are watching those with power and that we will judge them if they choose the toxicity of London City Airport over the health of local people and of London. 

Groups of people from around the world have worn this symbol to show that we stand united for The Future.

How to get around in the future city. Love it!

Wow went to opening of the Siemen’s Crystal building, London’s newest landmark building and the world’s first center dedicated to improving our knowledge of urban sustainability.

Urban sustainability is among the most critically important global issues of the 21st century. Over half the world’s population live in urban areas - from small cities like York, to megacities like New York - and by 2050 that proportion will rise to 70% of all humanity.

The big challenge is that cities now consume about 75% of all the world’s energy and emit around 80% of all greenhouse gases. The fight against climate change will therefore be won or lost in cities, so it’s crucial we make our urban habitats more efficient, cleaner and better to live in - not only for ourselves, but for future generations and the earth’s diverse ecosystems.
