 Safe Walking should be a right for all. Around a quarter of the 1.3 million people killed on the world´s roads are pedestrians. Many are children.


There is still time to take part although photos will not be entered into the competition now. We will be announcing the winner over the next few week! In the mean time, check out some of our photos in the gallery on the right and some below! We have had participation from around 30 countries so far and have branded and posted the submissions into the global Long Short Walk Campaign.
