Blue Sky Ideas for Walking

Networking events for people promoting walking

Format of a Talk the Walk event is fairly straightforward. 

  • Meet up
  • Mix and Mingle
  • Listen to a 3-5 minute presentation - up to 16 at any event - (let us know if you have something you want to talk about).
  • Ask questions - Share ideas - Create an action plan 


Our next Talk the Walk, co-hosted with Groundwork London, will be on the theme of "Walking up the Garden Path - community kitchen gardens and their contribution to local health and wellbeing" and will take place from 4.30 - 7.00pm on Wednesday 21 April 2010 - at The Lighthouse West London, 111 - 117 Lancaster Road, Ladbroke Grove, London W11 1QT.

Community Food-Growing is more popular and in-demand than ever, so how can a project put down more permanent roots? How can we ensure the sustainability of such community enterprises so they continue to be effective? Does the fight against obesity offer opportunities with links to be made with those promoting physical activity, walking and healthy eating? – Join Talk the Walk to find out more about community up-skilling and meet others who like you are tackling these challenges.

Groundwork London are offering a walking tour of community kitchen gardens from 3.00pm.  Please register here  for either or both events, ticking the appropriate boxes on the registration form, if you wish to participate in either or both events.  Numbers are strictly limited.


For each event we create a new wiki page to which you can add information, recommendations and suggestions: Wednesday 21 April
