Walking and wheeling to a happier, healthier, greener Scotland, with Kevin Lafferty
In this episode we chat with Kevin Lafferty, Chief Executive of Paths For All. Scotland's national walking charity, supported by NatureScot and other partners, works hard to get everyone in Scotland to be active every day – from maintaining paths and training volunteers, to providing local health walks for all.
Kevin explains how the new Step It Up strategy aims to tackle physical inactivity, poor mental wellbeing, health and transport inequalities and the climate emergency. He also highlights the many benefits of walking, how we can all connect with nature when walking or wheeling, and why we need to make our paths fit for our grannies!
