> 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 volunteer-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.
Read through our revised principles and let us know what you think.
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.
