Walking Visionaries Awards

The Walking Visionaries Awards highlight new ideas to realize the potentials of walking for liveable communities and sustainable cities. The programme does support individuals and organisations from across the globe, coming from different backgrounds and cultural contexts.




The winning submissions will receive a free conference ticket for the foremost global venue to discuss walking and liveable communities: The Walk21 conference, taking place in Vienna, Austria in October 2015.

During the conference there will be ample opportunities for awardees to meet leading voices in the field of non-motorized transport, future mobility and sustainable urbanism.

The Walking Visionaries Awards aim to create a reference collection of creative approaches to foster walking and liveable communities. All accepted awards’ submissions will remain published on the awards’ website.

The Walking Visionaries Awards are open for ideas and projects covering all fields related to walking and liveable communities. Submissions will be accepted exclusively via the online submission form starting from March 2015 through 30 April 2015.



The prizes within the Walking Visionaries Awards are allocated to equal parts by a public voting process and a jury vote.

Public Voting: Throughout May 2015 a public voting will determine one half of the Walking Visionaries. The Awards reach out to the global community to help define the most innovative and potentially useful ideas and projects for walking and liveable communities.

Jury Voting: In late May 2015 a jury vote will determine another half of the Walking Visionaries.

The final list of the Walking Visionaries Awards winners will be announced in mid-June 2015.
