Walk21 is active in every continent and committed to helping everyone that aspires to meet more of the needs of people walking.
We represent walking through work on a broad variety of projects with city councils, training on how to create a walkable city and advocacy.
To ensure there is knowledge and expertise for walking, Walk21 supports national and local projects in a variety of roles. Most commonly Walk21 is an innovator and convener – helping develop cutting edge initiatives that can be exemplars of best practice for other cities internationally to benefit from.
To grow capacity for walking globally, Walk21 runs (workshops for advocates, practitioners and politicians). The ‘8 Steps to a Walkable City’ is the most popular support package but other training is also available to help audit walkability, develop campaigns and adopt indicators for valuing the impact of investment in walking initiatives.
To advocate for walking Walk21 provides a strong, visible and consistent voice to represent the needs of walkers internationally at meetings, events and actions. We provides the platform for progressing the movement at our conference every year and we frame our work with the Sustainable Development Goals.
