The Africa Network for Walking and Cycling was developed during 2020 and is a space for organisations and experts to convene and collaborate under the auspices of a common goal: making the life of people who walk and cycle in African countries safer, healthier and more comfortable – through our combined action, expertise and influence.
The inaugural meeting of the Africa Network for Walking and Cycling was held on 23rd March 2021. Over 85 people attended the event representing a broad range of stakeholders from academia, local and international NGOs, cities and local governments. The network will set up 8 working groups to focus on a variety of issues including financing, walking research and best practice.
Walk21 acts as Chair and secretariat for the network, working closely with the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) as the lead agency.
We are currently seeking a Project Coordinator to support the network. You can read more about the position here. Applications close on 22 April 2021.
