This year the Geographies of Health and Wellbeing Research Group is supporting a series of Walks & Talks across the country. The purpose of the events is to connect local members and get people together to have research or topical conversations in a relaxed outdoor environment; an alternative to a seminar with a spring in its step.
We will be sharing the locations of upcoming Walk and Talk events on our Twitter and GHWRG website. However, if you are interested in organising a Walk and Talk Event in your area, more information about the format and some helpful tips for organising your event are available: Walks and Talks Tips.
There are a small number of travel bursaries available to help you reach out to other colleagues and members and draw attendance to the events. You may want to plan a large walking event for your region or take a lunch time stroll with colleagues, either way we want to encourage active conversations engaging themes of health and wellbeing across fields, departments, universities and sectors.
