This weekend there are walks all over the world promoting getting to know your community by walking in memory of Jane Jacobs. It is a wonderful idea and I am looking forward to taking in a few of the walks planned for Halifax tomorrow. Jane’s Walk explains –
Jane’s Walk is a series of free neighbourhood walking tours that helps put people in touch with their environment and with each other, by bridging social and geographic gaps and creating a space for cities to discover themselves. Since its inception in 2007, Jane’s Walk has happened in cities across North America, and is growing internationally.
