About us

Walking Project is a grassroots advocacy campaign that was founded on June 20, 2012, in Mumbai.  Our mission is to create a well-functioning system of people-government collaboration & create an environment for waking which is safe, convenient & joyful. 

It was founded by Mumbai-based environmental activist Rishi Aggarwal along with Vivek Gilani, Amar Deshpande, Abhijit Mehta, and Pramod Dabrase.

 Our goal is to foster a dynamic societal dialogue by collaborating with the government on projects, producing captivating media content, and cultivating an environment where citizens actively demand & appreciate high-quality pedestrian infrastructure, which the government eagerly provides.

 We plan to achieve the same with a strategic approach of simultaneous community building, content creation, public meetings & collaboration with various government bodies to fix existing walking infrastructure and push to introduce new & tested concepts of pedestrianization from across the globe in Mumbai.
