Am I willing to organize an hour-long walk accompanied by others who have a genuine curiosity about things that go on around them?
Am I passionate about anything in my community? For example, have I observed health or social issues, architectural concepts, art, history and heritage, walkability or activity, transportation, cycling, environment or culture in my neighbourhood?
Am I OK with chatting in a friendly fashion with a group of 10 – 15 strangers who are keen to hear what I think and know? Am I interested in their ideas?

Think about a time slot on Saturday or Sunday May 2nd or 3rd. (For example, a high-traffic area might be better at a quieter time of day.)
How could it be any easier? We’ll help you every step of the way:
Your walk will be publicized on our website, posters, Facebook and Twitter.
