May is Living Streets National Walking Month!
This year not only are Living Streets asking you to get out walking every day - they also want you to help build a picture of how walkable our streets are.
Cities around the world are beginning to realise that by getting more people walking and reducing the number of cars, they will create a healthier, more equal society and attract business and investment into the city.
Living Streets is delighted to be partnering with Westfield Health for National Walking Month again this year.
Westfield Health believes in the many benefits of walking. And yet its research reveals that as many as 60% of UK workers hardly move from their desks during a typical working day.
That's why this May, Westfield Health is getting in the National Walking Month spirit by inviting you to reclaim your lunch break and get walking - and TV presenter Carol Vorderman has signed up to help get the message out!
