#walk15 is an app that motivates people to walk every day. It seeks to increase physical activity among citizens of various ages and to reduce CO2 emission.
#Walk15 does that by providing people a fun and easy way to challenge their family, colleagues, friends – and most importantly, themselves - to walk more. Besides fun, there is a practical aspect - people convert their “collected steps” into real value, like special offers and discounts, in local shops or online. Moreover, there is a global aspect. Users can see how his or her decision to walk, for example, to get to required places in the city by foot and not by car, helps our planet, by reducing personal CO2 footprint and saving trees. Virtual trees in the user’s app become real ones, with the help of #Walk15 partners.
