WalkingMalta pursues for a more walkable and pedestrian friendly Malta through three main goals.
Leverage a proactive community of pedestrians to share their experiences, advise each other and raise awareness about their common needs and concerns.
Conduct participatory research to better understand the causes and consequences of pedestrian mobility with a local perspective.
Join forces between community and research entities to influence policy and lobby for a more pedestrian friendly Malta.
What can you do to improve Malta for pedestrians like you?
Try to walk more whenever possible, either as a means of transport, moderate exercise or recreative activity. You will be contributing to a healthier, more environmentally friendly and less traffic congested Malta.
Collaborate with WalkingMalta and be part of our pedestrian community. Everytime you see or experience something relevant as a perdestrian share it with us. You can learn how to do so here.
What are we doing to make Malta a better place for pedestrians?
We gather, process and analyse all the information shared on our WalkingMalta platforms to better understand what supports or hinders pedestrian mobility and their use of public space in Malta.
We constantly work on new innitiatives to promote and support walking in Malta. See some examples here.
WalkingMalta was originally set up as part of a doctoral research at the University of Malta. This initiative would not be possible wihtout the help and advise from some members of the Institute for Climate Change and Sustainable Development (ICCSD)
