Pedesting Launches the #HowDoYouPedest Campaign
To celebrate the launch of the Pedesting app and to raise awareness around pedestrian spaces and accessibility, at Pedesting we are launching the #HowDoYouPedest campaign (https://pedestcalgary.com)
#HowDoYouPedest is a campaign by Pedesting that is designed to start a conversation about Canada’s pedestrian spaces, like sidewalks, pathways, crosswalks and indoor spaces.
How do you pedest?” is a question we’re asking every pedestrian in your city.
· Anyone can pedest.
· You can be a parent with a stroller.
· You can be riding on your scooter to school or work.
· You can be an individual with a walker.
· You can simply be on a walk enjoying the fresh air.
· You can be an individual who uses a wheelchair every day.
We are all pedestrians, and this campaign centers on the pedestrian journey. It's about the small joys of strolling along sidewalks, the challenges some of us encounter in search of accessible routes, and the cherished accessible places where we take our loved ones. In every pedestrian journey, countless stories await discovery, and our campaign is here to bring them to light.
