Early on the morning of Walk to Work Day, 8 March, the Wellington branch of Living Street Aotearoa staffed a stand on Wellington waterfront and asked passers-by about walking to work.
We are looking forward to our national day to celebrate walking - once again to be held on the second Wednesday in March 2023.
Where - all over Aotearoa New Zealand
This year Walk2Work Day follows the New Zealand Census day so we are focussing on Walking Counts. Share how far, how many steps, how high or low, how everyday or unique your walk is on 8 March.
