Walk Taupo was formed July 2006. It is made up of a group of volunteers with support from Taupo District Council, Sport Waikato, Public Health Organisation, Living Streets Aotearoa, Bike Taupo and Educating NZ Empowering Educators. The Taupo Community needed representatives from their community to encourage and support walking as a recreational and daily activity.
The Walk Taupo committee meets as and when required. It has identified several needs and goals for the first year:
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.
