Slow Ways is a grassroots initiative to create a network of walking routes connecting Great Britain’s towns and cities. Here we speak with Dan Raven-Ellison, the geographer and campaigner behind the project.
Dan is a parent, guerrilla geographer, National Geographic Explorer, Ordnance Survey Get Outside Champion, and former geography teacher who led the campaign to make London the world’s first National Park City. Dan's work focuses on challenging himself and others to see the world in new ways, by combining creative exploration, geography and communication to tackle social and environmental challenges. Dan is currently working on a new project called “Slow Ways” – to collaboratively create a network of 7,000+ walking routes that connect all of Great Britain’s towns and cities.
