Through this strand of the project we seek to capture the experiences of the walking public during the pandemic

We recognise how beneficial walking can be to human wellbeing, placemaking, community building, and environmental sustainability. Through our Public Survey we want to understand how people experienced walking during COVID-19. We also hope to identify creative approaches and interventions made or encountered during lockdown (e.g. stone trails, art paths, pavement writing). We are keen to learn about how walking has been experienced during lockdown, and any barriers which have prevented people from walking.
