Walking to 2040 - what does the future hold?


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?

Fun, future, snickets and ginnels - find out more at our first meeting on 5 June

Principles towards a walking-friendly and human city

It is time to improve the situation and the status of the pedestrians, in an era where motor traffic in the cities is expanding causing a negative impact on the quality of city life. The goal should be to form a city policy dedicated to providing more living space and prioritising the pedestrian.
