Decade for Treasuring Life
Walk the Talk/ Talk the Walk
An elder woman walks 300 miles for 30 days from Nottingham to Glasgow COP 26, with 3 “friends” in her pocket and 3 questions chosen by the Youth of Nottingham (supported by UNESCO Nottingham City of Literature). Questions will focus on the themes of Hope, Humanity and Our Planet.
Travelling through rural and urban environments engaging with folks along the way. Recording diverse dialogues/responses daily on route. (For parts of the journey, playwright Stephen Lowe will join to discuss form and delivery – Stephen has Parkinsons). Accommodation, support networks and routes recorded for Slow Ways.
This will be a personal meditation and interrogation of the heart.
