Our next team task is to create an app for all to access details of the routes in the project Sustainability, Heritage, Health. Together with our three partners, we have now finished trialling the three routes in each partner country which make up the 'Sustainable Walks Programme.' The programme aims to create routes for people to learn about local heritage as well as initiatives to build sustainability.
At Surefoot we have designed a one-day route within the city of Edinburgh, a 2-day route from Lenzie near Glasgow to Linlithgow, and a 3-day route alongside the coast of Fife with the option to finish in St. Andrews. The 1-day Edinburgh route stops at places such as the Patrick Geddes Museum that commemorates the life of the Scottish town planner and environmentalist, the local green cooperative 'The New Leaf', and the UNESCO-designated Dean Village at the outskirts of the city.
Partners in Spain, Lithuania and Greece have designed routes along the St. James Way as it crosses the northern city of Santander, a section of the Lithuanian Baltic coast, and a route along the coast of Athens that ends at Sounio where there is an iconic temple dedicated to Poseidon.
Happy walking until next update.
