Green Foots ‒ The Symbol of International Hiking Day
Croatian Post issued a postage stamp on 15th October to celebrate World Walking Day. International day of hiking or popularly known as World Walking Day is celebrated every year on 15 October to create awareness for environment preservation. It develops awareness about the importance of physical activities and also a sense for community by supporting the World Walking Day.
TAFISA (The Association for International Sport for All) in 1992, suggested celebrating this day with the aim of developing awareness of the need for ecological environment preservation.
Every year since 1991 on the first weekend in October, millions of people around the world participate with TAFISA to celebrate World Walking Day. Moving, especially walking or hiking, is the most simplest form of preserving one’s mental and physical health.
The only things necessary for hiking are comfortable clothes and quality shoe wear that protects the foot and gives support to the entire body.For walking or hiking, trails or paths in the nature in the fresh air are most favourable, and hiking experiences at mountainous tops takes one’s breath away.
