Walkabout will create and support walking groups as well as support and encourage walking champions and those who choose to walk on their own and/or in less structured ways. The goal is to create social, recreational supports for more Nova Scotians to walk or walk more and contribute to creating a culture of walking in the province. Walkabout’s objectives are to:
- Create a sustainable system of volunteer walking group leader recruitment, training and ongoing support
- Create and strengthen existing partnerships with municipalities and other provincial and community organizations to more broadly reach the target populations
- Build capacity of partners to support walking among the target populations
This project is currently under development. Please stay tuned!
