“Jane’s Walk” is an annual festival of free, citizen-led walking conversations inspired by Jane Jacobs. Our mission is to help people walk, observe, and connect with their community and environment. Walks inspire people to make a difference because they enable members of a community to discover and respond to the complexities of their city and environment through personal and shared observation.

Jane Jacobs (1916-2006) was an urbanist and activist whose writings championed a fresh, community-based approach to city building. She had no formal training as a planner, and yet her 1961 treatise, The Death and Life of Great American Cities, introduced ground-breaking ideas about how cities function, evolve and fail, that now seem like common sense to generations of architects, planners, politicians and activists. A firm believer in the importance of local residents having input on how their neighborhoods develop, Jacobs encouraged people to familiarize themselves with the places where they live, work, and play.

Walks take place in hundreds of cities around the world on May 3rd, 4th, and 5th, 2019. Contact Cebu Literary Festival on Facebook or email cebuliteraryfestival@gmail.com or contact 0917-815-5794 for more information.
