Pimp My Stroller Walk

May 26, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join us for a leisurely 30-minute walk in Platy Aglantzia with your strollers, slings and toddlers. The easiest way for new parents to exercise and for children to experience the world is to go for a walk around our neighbourhoods. If you enjoy walking with your children even if you sometimes find it difficult, then join this event for a fun way to raise awareness and promote a better environment for families to walk in our cities.

The event is open to anyone who wants to promote a better walking environment: mums-to-be, parents with older children, wheelchair users or any other ‘simple’ pedestrian!

Start and finishing point Apostolos Andreas at Kyrenias avenue in Aglantzia   MAP

The objective of the event is to raise awareness of how difficult it is to walk in our neighborhoods with a stroller. It also aims at initiating short-term and longer-term action in improving the environment towards pedestrian-friendly designs and behaviors.

A combination of slow and poor urban planning coupled with people driving and parking behavior, and the ‘appropriation’ of public pavements by private home owners make it extremely difficult for new parents to undertake an activity which should be a common and natural part of daily life in a city.

Short walks for leisure and shopping are a simple way for new parents to undertake some physical activity, save fuel, reduce traffic and parking problems, and make a small contribution to the environment. Neighborhood walking also brings benefits to young children as they observe and experience their environment, interact with other people and have the opportunity to see and feel the air, the sun or the clouds, the wind, the trees, shop windows and passers-by rather than being stuck in a car seat.
