Possible is a national charity working with communities and individuals to speed up action on the climate crisis. Possible works in four areas where there is a pressing need for emission reductions and where people can have the most control: heating homes, getting around, getting away, and what we eat and buy.
Pop-up Parklets were created in four cities, Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, and London to show alternative uses for parking spaces. Cars (parked or moving) dominate our cities, but parklets show us what future cities could look like if they were designed for the needs of the people who live in them rather than for cars.
