Are you interested in learning more about your neighbourhood and sharing your story? Do you want to get more involved with your community and meet your neighbours?

Join Jane’s Walk! http://www.janeswalk.org/

Jane’s Walk is an annual series of free, volunteer-led community walking conversations inspired by urbanist Jane Jacobs. Over 100 cities have participated in Jane’s Walks from Calcutta to Canberra since 2007.

The walks are as varied as the people taking part, and they usually last about 90 minutes. Walk leaders offer their perspective along the route, and to encourage the public to weigh in. Through the simple act of walking and talking, the festival creates space for people to connect, share, and develop ideas about where their communities and cities are at and where they are headed. The Jane’s Walk Festival happens May 1-3, 2015.

Nico Koening from the Jane’s Walk organization will be providing an information session for interested community members in the North Burlington area who are curious about the Jane’s Walk festival and would like to learn more about how to connect with neighbours for a Jane’s Walk.

This free event will take place on Tuesday March 10th from 7 to 9 pm, 2258 Parkway Dr, Burlington.

The evening will be a great way to connect with others interested in talking about the importance of great neighbourhoods.
