Improving External Air Quality
Summer Streets – the pedestrianisation of Regent Street for one day a year to make people a priority and a fun place for families to visit started in 2013. The initiative also provided an opportunity to improve the external air quality. Each year Capital support the managing agent to build (at speed) a one day set to host visitors at a themed space focused on the many aspects of sustainability associated with Regent Street from biodiversity to recycling, gardening and allotments to eating local and seasonal. Each year the sets are creative, stimulating, sustainable and exciting to visit – the Regent Street Greenhouse attracted over 1 million visitors. Built for the event in 2014 and reused for Regent Street Sustainability Day – using FSC wood and built to dismantle and re-use."
