Thank You to our Sponsors
EcoFair Toronto is excited to welcome WalkRollMap.org as a major event sponsor!
Walking and rolling can be wonderful ways to get around the city – if streets and sidewalks are safe and accessible. Now you can help promote active transportation in your local community by mapping the barriers you face when walking or rolling in the city on WalkRollMap.org.
WalkRollMap.org is a crowdsourcing tool for mapping micro barriers to accessible walking and rolling. You can map whatever it is that is getting in your way, or a missing amenity. Mappers can also report if they’ve been hit while walking or rolling, had a near miss, or a fall.
Here’s a 60s video to explain how it works:
WalkRollMap is funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada. It was piloted in Victoria BC by researchers at UC Santa Barbara and the University of Victoria. It is now Canada-wide. Green Neighbours Network is partnering with them to bring it to the streets of Toronto. Please give WalkRollMap a try!
