It's also really important that we remember that the Ramblers
is NOT just about going on lovely walks (great as that is!); the Ramblers is also a campaigning organisation on
a range of issues.
Paving the Way
Imagine if all of Britainʼs town and cities truly put pedestrians first. If every residentʼs natural impulse was to
walk whenever they left their front door to make a short journey. If you were more connected to the place where you live
and the other people who live there. Itʼs a bold vision, but an inspiring one.
We want to make walking in towns and cities the easy option. The way you get to the shops, take the kids to school, go to work.
Walking is great for your mental health and wellbeing, the best way to get more exercise every day and itʼs good for the environment too.
And you discover so much more from your doorstep when youʼre on foot.
Weʼre calling on local authorities to improve walking infrastructure, and to make walking in towns and cities the easy option.
