Get Walking, Keep Walking in Birmingham

April 24, 2009

Tackling environmental inequality is partly about policy shift and partly about every day action. The video above (and also found on Be Birmingham’s youtube channel here ) tells the story of how The Ramblers have recently begun a programme of urban walks in some of the West Midlands poorest neighbourhoods.

Walking our streets isn’t simply good for our health, it can change how people understand the palce they live in, give them the information and the connections to make changes and also makes streets busier and so hopefully safer.

One more step towards shifting environmental inequalities.  More details on this website, and the project leaders in Birmingham have just begun blogging, including news here of the national get walking day on May 30th 2009.
