This IO shares its goals with the overall aims of this project: to promote cultural heritage and human and environmental health. To do that, partners will define walking routes in the four participating countries.
- Each partner country will create 3 walking routes that will be unique. One of them will be set in a more urban environment; the second one will be set in a more rural area, and the third one will be oriented at the coast. One walk will be 1 day, another 2 days, and another 3 days. This diversity is an added value to this project for three main reasons. Firstly, different people will learn about cultural heritage linked to these 3 specific types of landscapes.
- Secondly, different landscapes will cover varied topics about sustainability; an urban walk may focus on urban pollution whereas a coastal walk may emphasise the need to protect fish stocks and the oceans at large. Thirdly, people can chose to do the length of walk that suits their capacity.
- The guided routes will include information about sustainability and tips for people to reduce their impact on the environment.
This IO will include people with fewer opportunities, for example, people with health problems or disabilities, and also people who face geographical obstacles in rural areas in the UK,
Lithuania, Spain and Greece. Through the walks, people will learn about the benefits of physical exercise and mindfulness.
