About this deal

After he was diagnosed with adult-onset asthma as a result of breathing in pollutants from city vehicles, the mayor of London went on a mission to change emissions laws.

If you are planning to attend this event and would like details on how to get here and what time to arrive, as well as on accessibility and special requirements, please refer to LSE Events FAQ. He admitted this was a stunt designed to strengthen his ties with the Evening Standard whose support he needed during his campaign for the mayoralty two years later.Overall, I do not recommend this book, as it fails to provide any constructive solutions while spreading unfounded information. As ideas, these are not the most visionary, and Breathe will not score Khan points for political imagination, but the strategic lessons he imparts do mark him out as an exemplar for an age of climate breakdown and progressive governance. He was elected Mayor in 2016, and was re-elected in 2021 with a record number of votes for any sitting Mayor. One of the things I explain in the book is you’ve got to address people’s legitimate concerns – one of those is cost.

And yet, until my Marathon experience – and my first meetings with Rosamund – I’d barely known about air pollution. Editorial director Rowan Borchers said Breathe would be “both an intriguing inside account of life in City Hall, and a warm and practical guide to green politics”. Just take your badge and car park ticket to the parking attendant office at the entrance to the car park for validation before you leave.You can also use the external lift near the Artists' Entrance on Southbank Centre Square to reach Mandela Walk, Level 2. I was drawn to it by Prototype Press’s striking cover design, with one block of colour and one white block.

Minouche Shafik is President and Vice Chancellor of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). It is the first time a UK Mayor has been invited to participate in such an event, recognising London’s place as a driving force in accelerating and delivering climate action. That’s an enormous shame for obvious reasons, but it’s also a *major fail* for humanity in the face of the existential crisis that is climate change, which doesn’t care about who we vote for and why. A disproportionately large number of pages in the book are given over to events in cities like Accra, Ghana, which apparently has a huge problem with illegal toxic waste.I read this book expecting it to be a serious work on air quality, however what I found was a complete work of fiction.

He voices the realisation that being driven around the capital can be seen as hypocrisy, but the opposition his policies engender necessitate this. All articles posted on this blog give the views of the author(s), and not the position of LSE British Politics and Policy, nor of the London School of Economics and Political Science.Whether by building coalitions across the political spectrum, putting social justice at the heart of green politics, or showing that the climate crisis is a health crisis too, he offers a playbook for anyone - voter, activist, or politician - who wants to win the argument on the environment. Despite the frankly ridiculous tearing up of Sadiq Khan’s book ‘Breathe’ by Talk TV presenters on live television a few days ago, no stunt by them can get away from the central point in the book. What I try to do in the book is explain how I’ve tried to address those concerns and overcome those obstacles – how you can win arguments and in the end win elections to try to bring about change. The book tells the story of authors Athena Liu, a literary darling, and June Hayward, a literal nobody. Thank goodness Sadiq is brave enough to confront the crisis with humility, authenticity, accessible expertise, and dare I say - a bit of much-needed humour and optimism!
