The Greater Manchester (GM) Moving walking programme is working on some branding for the work that supports the notion that anyone can walk anytime, anywhere and ‘their way’. The aim is to help people recognise that they can and do walk, and that it is possible to do more as part of their everyday life. Along with a range of images, part of this is developing some alternative terms for walking that a range of people can relate to.
Some words have been proposed (for example strolling, roaming, ambling and strutting), and GM Moving are keen to test these words with people from across Greater Manchester, before they start to use them as part of the Greater Manchester Walking Festival in May 2019.
GM Moving have developed a short questionnaire to capture your thoughts: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/GMWalking. The closing date for responses is Sunday 17 February 2019.
