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. It is also a very safe and pleasant option for travel.
Our thanks to all those who sponsored and supported Walk2Work Day.
Good on you people for making the sustainable choice (for your health, the health of your city and the planet) and walking and using public transport. Check out more photos on our Facebook page.
Help us to keep walking on the agenda by joining Living Streets Aotearoa.
