A HUGE thanks to the volunteers who led our 78 walks. And all the people who joined you.
Save the date: The next Jane’s Walk festival is May 3, 4, 5, 2019 – in Calgary and around the world.
Jane Jacobs (1916-2006) Jane was an urbanist and activist whose writings championed a fresh, community-based approach to city building. She saw cities as ecosystems that had their own logic and dynamism which would change over time according to how they were used. With a keen eye for detail, she wrote eloquently about sidewalks, parks, retail design and self-organization. At the core of her work and thinking was the need to get out and walk your city and observe how people, through their actions and interactions, create communities with a strong sense of belonging.
We can help you think through your ideas and plan your walk. Get in touch.
