COVID-19 amplified the need for walking and places to walk in communities around the world.
The pandemic revealed a lack of visible data on walking and Walk21 have filled this gap with this platform. We hope ‘Pathways to Walkable Cities’ will improve the visibility of existing knowledge, celebrate the good practice that is happening and inspire more investment in walking.
This map-based platform shows some strategic insights into every country’s state of walking for the first time. We hope that by looking at these sets with a ‘walking lens’ and bringing them together in one place, will accelerate the global momentum that is gathering pace in every region, to support the needs of people walking.
In addition to these data sets, we have highlighted over 100 examples to illustrate the pathways that are being taken around the world to do more to retain, protect and enable people to walk.
With thanks to FIA Foundation for their funding support for this work.
