ABOUT US

> Why We Walk

We walk our cities to honor and activate the ideas of Jane Jacobs. Jane’s Walk is a community-based approach to city building that uses citizen-led walking tours to make space for people to observe, reflect, share, question and re-imagine the places in which they live, work and play.

> Who We Are

Jane’s Walks are organized by a network of City Organizers around the world. Learn about the history and the people behind the project.

> 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.

Jane’s Walk is a movement of free, citizen-led walking conversations inspired by Jane Jacobs. It encourages people to share stories about their neighbourhoods, discover unseen aspects of their communities, and use walking as a way to connect with their neighbours.
