What is it about?

Walk2Work Day is part of a Living Streets campaign that aims to encourage people to walk more in their daily lives.  It is a free event held before work in a location close to the main walking routes, targeting people who have walked all or part of the way to work.

The campaign aims:

-         To encourage more people to walk to work and encourage active healthy lifestyles for all New Zealanders.

-         To raise the profile of walking as a as an essential mode of transport.

-         To decrease road congestion by reducing the numbers of private vehicles on our roads.

-         To support the local economy (by way of retail purchases from walkers on their journey to work).
