> 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.
Jane’s Walks are guided by the principles gifted to us by Jane Jacobs herself.
Jane’s Walks are organized by a network of City Organizers around the world. Learn about the history and the people behind the project.
Jane Jacobs (1916-2006) was a writer, urbanist and activist who championed the voices of everyday people in neighbourhood planning and city-building.
