Living Streets Aotearoa's survey of Wellington local-body election candidates found that most candidates support better walking facilities for Wellington residents and across the region.
Join us for a Sunday afternoon spring cleaning the Grafton Road to Maida Vale Road steps, Roseneath - the longest stretch of steps in Wellington. These fabulous steps have become overgrown over winter and need a brush up to be ready for the spring and summer foot traffic down to the Balaena Bay beach. Bring your broom or weeder along and lend a hand with your neighbours - or just come along for a chat.
Walk to join us for free breakfast under the sails on Queens Wharf on Wednesday 13 March 2013 from 7am to 9am. Music, Mish fitness, Shoe Clinic, food, and good walking company all to celebrate pedestrians and the free, most sustainable, healthy and fun mode of transport - walking. Leave those wheels at home and walk or catch public transport/walk to Queens Wharf to join in the fun.

Living Streets Aotearoa is holding it's first meeting for 2012 to look at what the future holds for pedestrians and walkers. With many councils preparing their Long Term Plans, and, nearly a year on from the change to a purely volunteer organisation for Living Streets it is timely to discuss what we can look forward to and achieve in the future: what are our ambitions and goals, as individuals, in our organisation, and in our workplaces?
The third in our series of walking into the future looks at research into parking space allocation and the important place of pedestrians in a vibrant economy. This meeting will be of interest to all in local government and those interested in walking. Listen to the researchers present their myth-busting results from New Zealand studies.
When 5.30pm - 7.30pm Tuesday 6 September 2011

What is new in 2022?
March was Walk2Work Day share a photo only due to Covid restrictions, we hope to be back in full stride next year for this popular event.
March was also Park(ing) Day and once again Living Streets took over a car park to reflect on 'Covid Space Walk' and all that distance between us due to the pandemic.
