More people walking will improve physical, mental and social health, create safer, friendlier and less polluted communities, and boost local economies through increased footfall and healthier, more productive staff
The strategy supports a range of policy areas including the National Performance Framework, Public Health Scotland’s priorities and the Active Scotland Outcomes Framework
The strategy is delivered by a range of partner organisations, facilitated by Paths for All
