Walk2Work Day is part of a Living Streets campaign that aims to encourage people to walk more in their daily lives. It is a free event held before work in a location close to the main walking routes, targeting people who have walked all or part of the way to work.
The campaign aims:
- To encourage more people to walk to work and encourage active healthy lifestyles for all New Zealanders.
- To raise the profile of walking as a as an essential mode of transport.
- To decrease road congestion by reducing the numbers of private vehicles on our roads.
- To support the local economy (by way of retail purchases from walkers on their journey to work).
Events will be held at various locations all over New Zealand on March 10th 2010.
