Who - London Leaders

London Leaders 2012

In July 2012 we announced our fifth group of inspiring London Leaders.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, welcomed this year's new London Leaders – eight people chosen from across the capital to inspire us all to lead more sustainable lives.

The Mayor said this year's cohort of London Leaders, which is backed by his volunteering initiative Team London, had been chosen for their vision and ability to inspire others to lead greener and more socially responsible lives.

He said: "In this Olympic year London can really showcase to the world that it is one of the most sustainable cities on the planet. I welcome the new London Leaders to their role and congratulate them on having the vision and the drive to make a real difference in their communities. Practical leadership in sustainability will improve the quality of life for all Londoners in the years to come."

John Plowman, Chair of The London Sustainable Development Commission, said: "We need people with vision and drive to lead sustainable change across London. This year's Leaders have all of that in abundance and I look forward to seeing them succeed in their chosen projects in the coming 12 months."
