We were delighted to have a series of poems “in praise of walking” written for THINK, written by Professor Matthew Jarvis, writer, critic and poet at Aberystwyth University. We were looking at creative techniques we could use to get people thinking differently about the relationships between transport and health. We were discussing these with Matt and he introduced us to the historic use of Praise Poetry in Wales. He suggested developing poems in praise of healthy transport, and we start here with three poems in praise of walking, all with their different and unique mood, feelings and beats, ambling, stomping, walking with a purpose. Ain’t nothing at all pedestrian about one foot in front of the other…indeed. The poems premiered when THINK hosted the UK stop at the International Conference on Transport and Health (22/6/22).
