Roundtable: Politics of Walking & Walkability

October 28, 2022 Roundtable for the Global Walkability Correspondents Network

Politics of Walking & Walkability‘ hosted by London-based Alan Lacey Raposo

A very interesting and great start to what will be a Roundtable series on the theme.

Description: Many countries recognize some form of legal right to walk within their frontiers. The extent of this right varies from one country to another and is tightly linked to its historical and political development. 

How is the right to roam understood in your country? What is the political and historical background? Should limits exist to this right? and what can be done to improve legislation and public footpaths around the world?

Thanks also to network participants present!
