Our public survey showed that more people walked during COVID-19, and walked more frequently. However, some people walked less, or their walking reduced over the various lockdowns. Many barriers or challenges to walking were identified by respondents.

We have commissioned 30 artists from across the UK to contribute recipes to The Walkbook which address one or more of these research challenges including:

bad weather - bored of walking - shielding - anxious - lack confidence - excluded - in pain - nowhere to walk - bored of walking the same route - cannot walk very far - frightened - lack time - can’t be bothered - isolated

We hope that The Walkbook provides people – individuals and groups – with inspiration to walk, and to keep on walking.
