Jane's Walk


Recurring Events

  • Jane's Walk Logo

Celebrate the global Jane’s Walk festival with Idea Exchange!

Jane’s Walk is a movement of free, citizen-led walking tours inspired by Jane Jacobs. These walking conversations about people and cities can be led by anyone because everyone is an expert on the places they live, work, and play.

Each spring, be part of a guided walking tour led by a local community member. Hear stories about the community, explore the city, and connect with your neighbours. Jane’s Walk with Idea Exchange take place in different locations around Cambridge each year.
