We call on all political parties to prioritise walking.

Public health. Climate change. The vibrancy of our communities. These are all big issues in the forthcoming general election.

Walking has a vital role to play in all of them. And Living Streets' Manifesto For Walking is here to explain why - and how.



Our campaign is now closed. We will contact any new MPs that have signed up to our manifesto, and look forward to working with the next government and ministers to ensure walking is put first.

The UK faces an urgent need to tackle the public health crises of obesity and inactivity, boost the vibrancy of our communities and public spaces, improve the quality of our air and address the urgent challenge of climate change.

Walking has a vital role to play – ensuring people make their shorter journeys on foot, getting more exercise, reducing carbon emissions and improving air quality in the process.

We want politicians to provide long-term funding for walking and back stronger laws to create cleaner, less congested streets, making walking the natural choice for everyday journeys.
