About the Project Office

Jane’s Walk was founded in 2006 by a group of Jane Jacobs’ friends and colleagues as a way to honour and activate her ideas. That first year, there were 7 walks in Toronto. Over the next 10 years, the movement saw rapid global uptake. In 2017, 1,700 Jane’s Walks took place in 223 cities around the world, spanning 37 countries and 6 continents.

The Jane's Walk Project Office is based in Toronto and operated by a small staff and team of volunteer advisors. Get in touch with us at info@janeswalk.org.
