Concession Street Walks
This summer, as part of the neighbourhood Walkability Project, Environment Hamilton initiated Concession Street Walks, a project meant to encourage residents to reduce their carbon footprint when running daily errands by using sustainable forms of transportation (walking, biking, public transit).
In order to reach this goal, we organized special walking tours, bike hikes, information sessions, and free giveaways for those who committed to taking the Walk There Challenge!
What is the Walk There Challenge?
The project is supported by the web-based "Walk ThereTool", which encourages Hamiltonians to sign on to the Walk There Challenge. You can commit to travel to destinations within 2 km of your home by foot, bike or bus, with the goal of reducing your vehicle trips by 10 percent.
Throughout the summer, a number of special events were held to promote Concession Street Walks:
Your Wish List:
In addition to our special events, we provided interested participants with a survey in which they could create a "wish-list" of changes and improvements that they would like to see happen along Concession Street to help increase the ease of walking/biking/public transportation in the neighbourhood.
Your body deserves a healthy environment to live in, so let's work together to make it a clean, safe, and enjoyable place to be! Take the Walk There Challenge, check out the special events for Concession Street Walks, and enjoy the benefits of a healthy lifestyle while helping your environment.
