Jane’s Walk London kicks off this Friday 12 May and runs until Sunday 14 May. All walks are free, non-commercial, non-partisan, open to everyone and led by citizens. View the Jane’s Walk London website for the full festival programme as well as details on walk accessibility.
The aim is to create opportunities to observe, reflect, celebrate, question and re-imagine the places in which we live, work and play. Jane's Walks create the opportunity to give a platform to citizens, businesses, and local groups to share their experiences of their neighbourhoods, the good or bad aspects, the local transformations and raise awareness around causes, topics and spaces close to their hearts.
In 2022, Savini Rajapakse (AoU Board Director and Young Urbanist Steering Committee Member) and Ioana Tamas (Young Urbanist Member) led some pretty interesting walks, have a read about their walks here. We look forward to seeing you there!

Jane's Walk London is part of the Jane's Walk network, a global movement and a community-based approach to city building that uses volunteer-led walking conversations to make space for people to observe, reflect, share, question and re-imagine the places in which they live, work and play. Jane Jacobs (1916-2006) was a writer, urbanist and activist who championed the voices of everyday people in neighbourhood planning and city-building.
