Collaborate Out Loud CIC are working with GM Walking (part of GM Moving) to host an out loud conversation about what would help communities across Greater Manchester to walk more each day. They will do this through engaging with individuals and community groups and collectives to understand:
• What helps people to walk more?
• What gets in the way of walking?
• What support and resources people would like to help them walk more
It is understood that the current situation with Coronavirus has changed how people are living their lives and it is hoped that, amongst all the heart ache and loss of freedom, some positives can be take from the situation around an increased use of technology across all generations and many people walking more each day.
Collaborate Out Loud CIC would particularly like to engage with the voices that are not always heard and from those that currently don’t walk each day to help us and others understand. In order to achieve this, they will host this conversation in an open, transparent way and share their learning and finding as they go. The end objective is to inspire people to walk a mile a day, whilst also developing some kind of resource to support even more people to walk a mile a day too. This will be a resource that is created by the people of Greater Manchester for the people of Greater Manchester.
