Speakers include award-winning designers Studio Ossidiana and Thomas Thwaites, author Richard Smyth, Bridget McKenzie of Climate Museum UK, Wildlife Gardeners of Haggerston and more. Although this is not strictly a guided walk, we encourage everyone who can to go out and enjoy this audio journey on the Canal – recommended starting point is at Islington Tunnel, walking east towards Kingsland Basin Nature Reserve (a leisurely 40mn walk). This is an experience designed for individuals to enjoy using their own phone and headset.The audio journey was conceived by There Project, with sound design by Deborah Ridley, for London National Park City.There Project is a collaboration between design curators Justine Boussard and Sarah Turner, founded to grow the community of designers who use their skills and creativity to imagine regenerative futures.
