The walks get people to tell stories about their communities, explore their communities, and connect with neighbours. Anyone can lead a walk because everyone is an expert on the places they live, work and play. In 2015, Jane's Walk took place across 6 continents, 36 countries, 189 cities, and in the form of over 1000 walks. Mayors from throughout Metro Vancouver challenged their constituents to participate in a Jane's Walk.
