    Walk the World Walk the World Presentation Transcript

    • Walk the Worldhttp://www.walktheworld.org.uk/ Launched this week by Nick Crane Developed by RGS-IBG
    • ConnectionsFollow a walk…
    • Submitting a WalkTo create a walk you need four ingredients:1. You need evidence of good links to at least 15 other countries in an area that you can comfortably walk around; and to know the stories behind those links. The links become the points of interest on the walk.2. You need to plan the route between the points of interest so that the walk is easyand fun to follow, and to make a map of that route. Ideally the walk starts and endsat the same place. We suggest using the free Ordnance Survey Get a Map service tocreate your route. Its free to register and use the site.3. You need, ideally, a theme to the walk. This theme will tie together the stories atthe points of interest and help you to create a more interesting walk for the user.4. Finally, you will need to write a commentary for the walk, and this will includethe stories at each point of interest, and the directions for how to get to the nextpoint of interest on the walk. If you can attach some photos of points of interestthat would be really good too.
