Living Streets issues four point plan to get New Zealand walking again
Pedestrian advocacy group Living Streets Aotearoa has released a four point plan to get more New Zealanders walking. The plan has been produced on the back of New Zealand’s first national Walking Summit which saw pedestrian advocates, disability groups, sustainability experts and politicians come together to propose workable solutions to New Zealand’s walking crisis.

Living Streets Aotearoa is the New Zealand organisation for people on foot, promoting walking-friendly communities. We are a nationwide organisation with local branches and affiliates throughout New Zealand.
We want more people walking and enjoying public spaces be they young or old, fast or slow, whether walking, sitting, commuting, shopping, between appointments, or out on the streets for exercise, for leisure or for pleasure.
