:: JANE`S WALK ::

May 04, 2012

"Jane’s Walk celebrates the ideas and legacy of urbanist Jane Jacobs by getting people out exploring their neighbourhoods and meeting their neighbours. Free walking tours held on the first weekend of May each year are led by locals who want to create a space for residents to talk about what matters to them in the places they live and work. Since its inception in Toronto in 2007, Jane’s Walk has expanded rapidly. In May of 2011, 511 walks were held in 75 cities in 15 countries worldwide.











The Jane’s Walk audience includes:
• Anyone who enjoys getting to know their city and neighbours.
• People who want to participate in meaningful conversations about the social and built future of their neighbourhoods.
• People engaged in the work of building cohesive communities and improving the walking environment.
• People who want to change their cities and neighbourhoods, for example to narrow the gap between the haves and have-nots in our cities and towns.
• Youth and children who experience the impact of current transportation choices disproportionately, but who are rarely consulted on their aspirations for walking or cycling." 


This year for the first time Jane`s walk will also be in Celje (my hometown), so if you are free tomorrow 5th of May at 10am you are welcome to join the walk! 
Jane`s walk is organised by METRO SR and one of the people who will lead the walk is my boyfriend. Must be proud on him right? :) 
Ok basically this are informations for Slovenians, but all of you should ask google if maybe Jane`s walk is in your area as well & have some educational recreation this weekend! :)  

Jane`s walk will also be in Ljubljana on Sunday, 6th of May. You can find info + walking path here..

    2. Thank you, for letting me know. I kinda didn't expect a positive answer, knowing how great things could be here in Maribor and yet they aren't with such an AS****E of a mayor running the city :/
