Jane’s Walk London

Jane’s Walk London is a festival of free, citizen-led walking conversations inspired by Jane Jacobs and taking place in London and around the world every year during the first weekend of May. 

We are part of the Jane’s Walk network, a global movement and a community-based approach to city building that uses volunteer-led community walks to make space for people to observe, reflect, share, question and re-imagine the places in which they live, work and play. We encourage people to share stories about their neighbourhoods, discover unseen aspects of their communities, and use walking as a way to connect with neighbours.

We are a group of young women, all from different backgrounds, both in life and careers, volunteering our time to develop this exciting and evolving project in London. We are particularly interested in opening the conversation around the city-making process to the wider public and specifically aim to:

  • Instil belonging and foster civic leadership
  • Support people in building their urban knowledge and consciousness
  • Find alternative and creative ways to observe and critically analyse cities 
  • Create the opportunity for experts from different backgrounds to get to know their urban audiences better
