First Festival of Walking will be held in Savsko naselje in Ljubljana on Friday, 6 May 2016. It is organized by the Institute for Spatial Policies in collaboration with the Cultural Association prostoRož and other partners, with the support of the Municipality of Ljubljana – European Green Capital 2016.
The festival will be opened by five Jane’s Walks, which will be launched simultaneously in different parts of Ljubljana and they will all lead to the venue of the festival in front of Dom skupnosti in Savsko naselje. Walkers will sum up their impressions and formulate proposals to improve the attractiveness of urban space for everyday walking during the workshop that will follow. At the festival various activities will be held to emphasize the importance of the diversity of local services for the walking-friendly neighborhoods.
The festival will be an excellent opportunity for the residents of Ljubljana, to jointly develop proposals to improve walkability of the city of Ljubljana even further.
