This chapter discusses the London-based organisation Just Space, outlining how it emerged in 2007 to challenge issues of social injustice and the London-wide policies about urban regeneration and economic and environmental sustainability. It argues for the need to rebalance both debate and policy on London's future in ways in which the focus of politicians should be on those who are excluded from access to decent housing, employment, and good quality public services and spaces. The main goal of Just Space is to provide a community voice or forum to articulate ideas about realistic alternatives to neoliberalism, and to develop ways of organising London's society to avoid pricing people out of housing and other facilities in low-income communities.

Keywords:   social injustice, urban regeneration, environmental sustainability, neoliberalism
