Jane’s Walk

Organiser: North West Young Planners
Location: Chapel Street, Salford

Interested in continuing the ideas and legacy of urbanist Jane Jacob? Then come and join us in celebrating Jane's work by taking part in Jane's Walk. Jane's Walk is a series of conversational walking tours inspired by urban thinker Jane Jacobs, that helps put people in touch with where they live and with each other. It bridges social and geographic gaps, creating a space for cities to discover themselves. Since its inception in 2007, Jane's Walk has happened on the first weekend in May in cities across North America, and is growing internationally. In 2012, there were walks in 85 cities and 17 countries around the world. This year is the first time tours are being held outside of London, so we are very excited to be able to offer a North West Young Planners tour in Liverpool and Manchester.

The Manchester NWYP's Jane Jacob's Walk is being held on Wednesday 1 May, beginning at 6:30pm in Chapel Street.

Join the Young Planners as David Greenfield, regeneration officer at Salford City Council guides us on a walking tour of the regeneration interventions and current and future redevelopment sites in central Salford to explain the Council's regeneration framework that aims to restore the area as a major centre for Greater Manchester.
