Maps & Guides

A great idea and a project of the International Federation of Pedestrians

When streets are dead-end for cars but are open for pedestrians as well as cyclists we label them living-end-streets.

New maps to explore the Shore

Congratulations to Margaret Scrymgeour, a member of Living Streets Aotearoa, for compiling into a handy booklet form a series of walking routes to help people explore the hidden walkways and small reserves throughout Auckland's North Shore. Margaret has been involved in walking activities on the North Shore for the past 30 years. The routes were "road tested" by Margaret with help from family and friends.  Albany Newcomers Network, Rex Oddy and Albany CoCo Inc assisted with the publication of these booklets.

Accessibility - what is it and how does it assist economic decision making

Abstract Remit

Walkable communities mean accessible communities: where economic opportunities abound and where access to opportunities is enabled via transportation.  How then are these communities created?  How can better information be provided to decision makers about the benefits of providing improved accessibility?  And how accessible are our existing communities?

Walking and the role of 'dollars and sense' in travel behaviour change initiatives in the Wellington Region

Abstract Remit

From persuading a Human Resources manager that supporting staff walking to work creates a more productive workforce to explaining the health benefits of more children walking to school; the economic benefits of walking are a common thread in the implementation and evaluation of Greater Wellington's Sustainable Transport programmes. This presentation provides an overview of a range of behaviour change initiatives involving encouraging walking that we've tried, highlighting their strengths and lessons learned.
