On next SUNDAY MAY 3rd 2015, RIZOMA LAB is organizing a walk in LAGOS, integrated in the global Jane’s Walk Festival. You are welcome to join us and share your story.

On Friday May 1st – Sunday May 3th 2015, , thousands of people around the world will come together to walk and talk about what makes a good city for the Jane’s Walk festival. The festival is a global movement of free, locally led walking tours inspired by iconic writer and urban activist Jane Jacobs.

Jane’s Walk cultivates a broad understanding of how cities develop, function, and thrive. It works to advance walkable neighborhoods, increase urban literacy, and promote neighborhood cohesion, civic engagement and leadership.

In Lagos, the tour, guided by Elena Morán, will be focused on the old Rua Augusta, which, within the ancient sixteenth century walls, starts in Porta da Vila and ends in Porta do Postigo, linking the two parish churches in town – Santa Maria and São Sebastião – located on the most salient points of the two bollards where they were deployed.

What’s Rua Augusta today’s experiences in the City historic center ? What’s the real impact of Urban Rehabilitation an Renewal Projects in its dynamic ?

Some of the walk themes that have taken place over the years include: being a newcomer to a community, food access and security, public art, public spaces, accessibility, health and wellbeing, sports, safety, gender issues, politics, revitalization and much more.

Every perspective is important to building vibrant and healthy cities.

The walk will be lead in portuguese and for more details about Lagos Walk visit http://janeswalk.org/portugal/lagos/
