“No one can find what will work for our cities by … manipulating scale models, or inventing dream cities….You’ve got to get out and walk.” -Jane Jacobs
Jane’s Walk as a Way to Catalyze Change
Events like this are a great chance to come together to think critically about the public spaces you encounter every day- and imagine how small scale changes can make them extraordinary.
More than a nice way to spend an afternoon, events like these can actually help forge the personal connections and networks that are the foundation that makes community-led, lighter, quicker, cheaper projects possible. This year’s walks will occur throughout the U.S. on May 7th and 8th.
