Jane’s Walk 2014

Jane’s Walk is an annual series of free neighbourhood walking tours that helps put people in touch with their environment and each other by bridging social and geographic gaps and creating a space for cities to discover themselves. It honours the legacy and ideas of urban activist and writer Jane Jacobs who championed the interests of local residents and pedestrians over a car-centered approach to planning. Since its inception in 2007, Jane’s Walk has happened in cities across North America, and is growing internationally. Preparations are now underway for this year’s Vancouverevent, coordinated by Architecture for Humanity Vancouver. Local residents are encouraged to  get in touch and involved: lead a walk, become a volunteer or just cheer others on. Walks are led by anyone who has an interest in the neighbourhoods in which they live, work or hang out. Not only about architecture and heritage, these free tours offer a more personal take on local culture, social history and the planning issues faced by residents. For more information visit Jane’s Walk.
