Walk21

Tram in Lisbon

Walking is the most fundamental form of mobility. It is inexpensive, emission-free, offers important health-benefits, is accessible for all – except those with substantially impaired mobility – regardless of income, and for many citizens is a source of great pleasure.

Too often walking is a neglected transport mode, despite being at the start and end of all trips, it is rarely captured in government statistics on mobility. It is often overlooked and under-valued in planning and policy development.

The Walk21 International Conference series on Walking and Liveable Communities celebrates the work of our speakers and delegates on an international scale as well as promoting the international profile of walking.

Discover the impact that we have on walking, our legacy and how to get involved by hosting our next conference. See our conference library data base where we share all our knowledge from our Walking and Liveable Communities conference series.

“Icelandic culture is infused with stories of travel. When names were needed for modern machines, the technology that enables our imaginations to travel, words were chosen that centred on the quality of roaming. Thus the neologism for laptop is fartölva, formed from the verb far, meaning to migrate, and tölva – migrating computer’; its companion, the external hard drive, is a flakkari. The latter word can also mean ‘wanderer’ or ‘vagrant’. In the end it’s the wanderers we rely on.” From Nancy Campbell’s “The Library of Ice”.
