A WEEKEND OF FREE, CITIZEN-LED WALKING TOURS ACROSS ATLANTA INSPIRED BY JANE JACOBS
Jane Jacobs was a famous urban activist and writer who lived from 1916-2006. She is best known for galvanizing New Yorkers to stop plans for an expressway through the West Village. She believed in the power of individuals to influence their city and her teachings are still present in planning approaches around the world. Click here for a great illustration of Jane’s principles.
On the first weekend of May every year, Jane’s Walk festivals take place in hundreds of cities around the world. Jane’s Walks encourage people to share stories about their neighbourhoods, discover unseen aspects of their communities, and use walking as a way to connect with their neighbours. You can learn more about the international movement at JanesWalk.org.
The Patch Works is participating on Friday May 3rd, kicking off this incredible weekend of walking tours. If you wish to join in on the fun, please check out the schedule of tours and remember to RSVP!
