THE UK CHARITY FOR EVERYDAY WALKING
Public health. Air pollution. Climate change. Transport. Road safety.
These are all big issues affecting our towns and cities, and reducing car dominance and making walking the easiest and safest option for everyday journeys is a key part of the solution.
With national, local and mayoral elections taking place in May, now is the time for our leaders to choose walking.
Our national walking summit is back on 18 March - and this year it will take place online.
After a year that saw our streets transformed, how can we make sure that they are changed for good, and that people are once again put before cars?
That will be just one of the focuses of this year's Summit, and our line-up is already shaping up, with panelists from Norway and Spain as well as around the UK.

Want to be part of the pupil-led scheme that has helped thousands of schools tackle road safety issues, pollution, congestion and childhood inactivity?
WOW, our flagship walk to school challenge, is back with brand new resources for primary schools for the 2020/21 year.

Our new five-year strategy
Our vision for walking is bold, ambitious and reflects the changed world we live in.
We want to see three outcomes:
- people choose walking
- better streets for walking
- all walks of life - we want walking to be for everyone.

Walking is man's best medicine
A generation ago, 70% of us walked to school – now it’s less than half.
We want to reverse this decline. We want children to be energised and empowered, and to make walking to school their natural choice.
And we know just how to do it.
