The walks help people united in a strong community full of resources, instilling ownership and encourage civic leadership.

Past trips have explored a wide range of urban landscapes, social housing provided for the redevelopment of areas with a rich architectural and cultural heritage, meeting places for teenagers and secret gardens. Individuals and small groups run walks. Some focus on historical issues around geographical areas, for example, some rides have been built around ideas such as urban forestry, gay and lsbn history, places of interest to the homeless, the story of Skid Row “and the urgent issues of planning with a particular district. The walks offer a more personal about the local culture and issues. There are a tourism initiative promoted by a tour, but insiders in a neighborhood that helps to open a friendly discussion, the participants were interested.
