Walking Meetings

Leah Adams
City of Canning

I recently created a walking meeting map and poster to display around the office to encourage staff to walk during meetings rather than always sitting. This is a small step in the right direction to active travel. We are fortunate at the City of Canning to have beautiful natural areas right on our doorstep! The poster is displayed in most meeting rooms, lunch rooms, and on office noticeboards. This will be promoted more widely to staff in late March/early April, when the weather is more conducive to walking meetings as opposed to hiding in the air-conditioning! I may even run a lunch time walking club or a walking competition if there is interest.

Hi Leah - and welcome back for 2024 with Your Move! I love this initiative of yours - nice work getting the map produced and placed around the office. I particularly like how you can book the 'walking meeting' as a meeting room 😁. You have earned 25 points for this promo and 10 points for sharing the poster and explaining clearly how it works. Following up with a potential walking groups sounds like a good plan too.
