As a society, we don’t walk as often, or as far, as generations before us did. In fact, in Melbourne alone around 40 per cent of the trips people make in cars are less than 2km long. That’s a pity, because these short trips can be walked, which is great for exercise, getting to know your neighbourhood and having fun!
There’s hardly a modern issue that walking doesn’t touch: it can improve health, strengthen social and community connections, reduce the cost of living, contribute to safer and more liveable communities and even help save the planet.
