1st - 2nd October 2016


TAFISA invites all member organizations, governmental and non-governmental bodies, NOCs and other interested parties to participate in the 2016 TAFISA World Walking Day (1st – 2nd October), which is from this year on fully integrated in the Take Back Your Streets… Take Back Your Future! program. In 2016, it is also part of the European Week of Sport.

Background – Make Everyday Your World Walking Day

The world is facing a phy1sical inactivity crisis of epidemic proportions that is bankrupting economies and decimating human potential. We must unite to bring physical activity back to the daily lives of all people. Public and open spaces are a huge untapped resource where we grow up, discover the world, make friends, have fun, spend family time, commute to school or work. They are the foundation of community life and have the intrinsic potential to offer opportunities to be active. Since 1991, the TAFISA World Walking Day celebrates open and public spaces as safe and friendly areas for people to walk. This year, we invite organizers and participants to take back their streets by organizing walking events, but also opening them to other active transportation means like bicycles, skates, rollers, etc., thus contributing to integrate PA into the everyday life of people and aligning with the second ask of Designed to Move.
