Jane's Walk Wellington - are we connected?
Join us for a walk following in the (imagined) footsteps of Jane Jacobs, one of the early urbanists who fought (and won) to maintain her 1960's New York neighbourhood from motorway development. Jane worked on the principle that citizens know what works in their neighbourhoods best and supported community based development from the bottom up. She appreciated that cities grow organically and can be a bit messy. Jane believed that cities were made great by their diversity, and having buildings with different purposes encourages lively activity throughout the day among neighbors.
