National Walking Day 25th September 2022

We want this year, on National Walking Day, to both celebrate and promote the power of walking.

Building on the successes of 2020 and 2021, our third annual National Walking Day for Ireland is going to be bigger than before! We want everyone in Ireland to participate!

This week as well as our celebrations, the 22nd International Walk21 Conference: The Decade to Change takes place in Ireland takes place in TU Dublin and will explore how supporting and encouraging walking and walking communities can help deliver the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

We will be sharing interviews this week with a range of researchers, policymakers, community groups and real walkers across our social media channels.
