Walk The World

Walk the World uncovers the places and people across the UK that link up the 206 Olympic and Paralympic Nations.

Through the Walk the World website people can submit their findings, explore links in their local area or beyond, and learn about the countries they relate to. Connections through buildings, place names, plants and animals, monuments, people and communities will reveal how the 206 Nations and their people have helped to shape every aspect of our environment. There’s the chance to explore further by downloading and taking part in specially created walks throughout the UK or by creating new walks for others to share.

By the time the eyes of the world look to the UK for the Olympic opening ceremony it is hoped that the Walk the World website will be packed with thousands of local connections to all of the Nations taking part.

Delivered in partnership with the Royal Geographical Society with IBG.
