how we are creating A walking nation,
One step at a time.


We want to create a walking nation where people of all generations enjoy the benefits that this simple act brings. And we want all our streets to be fit for walking.

Our work to bring walking back and local projects deliver real change to overcome barriers to walking and our ground breaking initiatives such as the Walk to School campaign encourage millions of people to walk.

Here you can see what we're doing across the nation and find out more about the ways we can get people walking.

Walk to School

We have a big ambition: every child that can, walks to school.

A generation ago, 70% of us walked to school – now it’s less than half.

Find out about the ways Living Streets gets children walking more, the fab tools we provide for teachers and parents, and the research and campaigning work that all underpin our vision of a new walking generation.

Air pollution

Walking is great for your health, but air pollution is putting the public at risk.

Walking and cycling

We want to see more cycling as well as walking. Both are green, clean and healthy ways of getting around.

Shared Spaces

Shared spaces have the potential to make our streets safer and more enjoyable to be in.
