Walk21 Kigali

Action for Walking – The Affordable and Essential Steps to Improve Walkability

The University of Rwanda, in partnership with the City of Kigali and UNEP, is proud to host Walk21 Kigali in 2023, the first Walk21 conference on the African continent. Together with experts from across Africa and around the globe, we will share insights and expertise on how to develop and implement walking policies and programmes that deliver walkable communities and safer streets, broader community participation and enhance the value of walking.

We are inviting politicians, engineers, campaigners, academics and planners to share their experience and be part of the discussions and activities at Walk21 Kigali.

You are invited to discuss the affordable actions that are transforming the urban paradigm; helping deliver on safety, equity and climate goals and are attracting investment for urban development that supports people walking.

Join us as we explore what makes a successful national policy, local action or transformative project for walking.
