John Myers

Co-founder of London YIMBY

London YIMBY is led by John Myers.

He studied at Harvard and worked in law and finance in New York and London, before being inspired by the American YIMBY movement. YIMBY is the acronym for “Yes In My Back Yard”. London YIMBY is a grassroots campaign to end the housing crisis and make better places with the support of local communities. Together with the national YIMBY Alliance, it campaigns for ‘Better Streets’ and ‘Better Blocks’, where residents can collectively agree to more homes of their approved design in their street or block.
