Blue Sky Ideas for Walking

STOP PRESS: in 2016, we are planning to bring back a regular series of Talk the Walk - watch this space!!!

Networking events for people promoting vibrant walkable neighbourhoods

Format of a Talk the Walk event is fairly straightforward. 


Check out our Advice sheet on School Growing Clubs - read how it was derived from two Talk the Walks - and download it here.


We are always open to partnerships offering venues, so please do get in touch if you would like us to run a Talk the Walk - simply email us


For each event we create a new wiki page to which you can add information, recommendations and suggestions.
