Lunchtime walks in Wellington

The Tuesday lunchtime walks have begun in Wellington for 2016. Ably led by Ron Ross these popular and regular sessions ramble around different parts of Wellington, from Aro Valley to the Stadium. Designed to get you out for an hour or less so they fit into a lunchtime, the walks all start from the bottom of Plimmer Steps.

Regular activity is shown to be the most beneficial for health and this is a great free way to see more of Wellington and meet new people too.

Ron you rock - walking star.

Climate change and walking

The recent Government public consultation on a proposed target (or INDC) for the Paris round of talks on Climate Change highlights one of the most pressing issues of our time. Living Streets Aotearoa has recognised this with not one but two submissions on the proposal, one from the national executive and one from the Wellington group.

New Zealand may be a small part of the global GHG emission but we are a high per capita emitter. Living Streets Aotearoa has a clear position on where New Zealand should be aiming:

Walk2Work Day 2015 - Walking and public transport

Walk2Work Day was celebrated this week by thousands of New Zealanders getting out on their feet (or in their wheelchair) and enjoying their daily trek to work, school or their daily activity. This special day is the national recognition of the important part walking plays in our lives, our urban fabric and our transport system. This year we highlighted the important, indeed essential, links between walking and public transport - they can not work without each other. Walking and use of public transport is the way to extend the range of your journey and carry those awkward packages.
