He created the Share the Road, 3 Feet Please and BikeAware road safety campaigns. He also runs a business that develops data aggregation software.

David has been involved with the growth of the Open Streets movement since 2010 and has studied organisation, funding, marketing and logistics. He has participated in a number of events in the USA and South Africa and in 2014 attended the first Open Streets Summit in Los Angeles.

Lynn Sloman

Lynn is the Founding Director of Transport for Quality of Life, a consultancy that works with government, local councils and voluntary groups to create ground-breaking solutions to transport problems, making our world nicer, greener and fairer. She believes that Open Streets events can help us all to see what cities could be like – places of enjoyment and delight – opening up the political space for citizens and civic leaders to implement progressive transport policies and better urban design.
