"Political courage is not political suicide"
Change in any form requires political bravery. And shaping our cities as healthy and democratic places is no exception. Birmingham has been on an extraordinary journey - a place where car was king to a city that is set to become net zero carbon by 2030.
We talk with Councillor Waseem Zaffar from Birmingham City Council about Birmingham’s future and the important decisions the city is making now to position itself for future success.
Councillor Waseem Zaffar is the Cabinet Member for Transport and Environment at Birmingham City Council.
He is on the West Midlands Combined Authority Environment Board and also a Non-Executive Director at the Sandwell & West Birmingham NHS Trust which includes City Hospital where he was born.
