On 20 April 2016, the DePICT Community-Led Infrastructures team held their first stakeholder workshop in London. This brought together twenty representatives from several levels of government, pedestrian and cycling advocacy charities, and grassroots initiatives. After lunch and a presentation on the project, the group discussed a number of issues, including timelines and the best means for finding grassroots initiatives. Several themes arose during the discussion. First, good informants may be found through social and local media (including those focused on issues other than transport), and in lower-profile experienced campaigners. Second, residents of disadvantaged neighbourhoods may struggle to find time for transportation advocacy. Third, cycling greatly overshadows walking with respect to advocacy and grassroots initiatives. These ideas will be very helpful for the upcoming DePICT fieldwork in London.
