Why We Walk
We walk our cities to honor and activate the ideas of Jane Jacobs. On the first weekend of May every year, Jane’s Walk festivals take place in hundreds of cities across the globe. Jane’s Walks encourage people to share stories about their neighbourhoods, discover unseen aspects of their communities, and use walking as a way to connect with their neighbours. Jane’s Walk in Edmonton is being coordinated by a local organizing committee made up of community volunteers and staff of supportive organizations.
About Jane Jacobs
Jane Jacobs (1916-2006) was a writer, urbanist and activist who championed the voices of everyday people in neighbourhood planning and city-building.
