Slow Ways surveying for Duke of Edinburgh?
Just a thought. Would doing Slow Ways surveys be a useful and enjoyable project for youngsters who are doing D of E? Could Slow Ways contact the D of E organisation to see if they are interested in being involved? It might be useful for both parties - more routes surveyed and more people learn about map reading and assessing routes.
Thanks Flora, would love to see that happen! Do you have any connections?
I don’t unfortunately. If anyone else reading this does have, please could you let us know.0
Hi Flora, Award groups of all kinds are welcome to get involved, definitely - Slow Ways - a network of walking routes connecting Great Britain. There's been some interest with an Edinburgh contact, and I'm expecting opportunities to arise in the coming months - including via the links on the Get Involved page. Thanks0
Is there any update on this? We live quite rurally and getting involved in reviewing routes for Slow Ways would be a great option for the D of E service section.0
Thanks for getting in touch . . . and apologies for the delayed response.
We'd love to be getting more young people engaged through D of E.
We're waiting to hear back from D of E, and hope to set up a meeting in the near future. There are a number of things to iron out, including the 'assessor' side of things.
We'll be putting an update here, once we've got more news.
All the best
