What is Street Wisdom?

Street Wisdom is a social enterprise with a mission to bring inspiration to every street on earth. Our free public events are run by volunteers all over the world. By embracing the therapeutic power of wandering: slowing down, connecting to what’s around (and within), people feel clearer, more inspired, less isolated and less stressed. We also design bespoke WalkShops for organisations to engage teams, making them happier and more effective. We give people the skills to see the urban environment in a new way, ask a question and use the answers they discover to unlock fresh thinking and make choices. It's walking based problem solving and direction finding. A navigational aid for people in complex times. A mix of psychology, mindfulness and cognitive science. Why wait for escape to exotic destinations when inspiration can be found on your own doorstep? It's a way to find the wonder in the everyday - every day. When you look at the familiar with fresh eyes - great things happen.

Join our global movement and discover that Answers Are Everywhere.
