'Social entrepreneurs are individuals with innovative solutions
to society’s most pressing social problems. They are ambitious
and persistent, tackling major social issues and offering new ideas
for wide-scale change.'
So . . having just completed my year with the Bristol School
of Social Entrepreneurs, and whilst I am still very much in the process of defining what that means for me, I am committed
to social and cultural change, and developing
this 'walking and talking' model
to make a difference, . .
"The problems that exist in the world today cannot be solved
by the same level of thinking that created them".
We currently spend more time sitting than sleeping.
More time inside than out.
More time static than moving
More time in action than in considered reflection
It doesn't take a room full of health professionals, philosophers
and academics to tell us this isn't going to end well . .
whether this is an increase in obesity, a greater risk of heart disease
and diabetes not to mention our mental health and wellbeing,
it is simply a matter of common sense, or as Albert said . .
"I very much enjoyed the netwalking event, it was great to meet so many new people, to be outside, feeling healthy and totally at ease striking up conversations with new people. The vibe was somehow different -
though we were talking business, it didn’t feel like it. The conversations flowed along with the walk, and the quality of conversations
seemed to run deeper. I would recommend netwalking."

We are sitting approximately 9.3 hours a day,
more than we are sleeping at 7.7
