We are very excited to announce our second World Wide Wander taking place Friday 14th to Sunday 16th September. This annual event is a chance to bring individuals together from all over the world for a weekend of wandering and wondering. It’s a chance to bring our global network together to strengthen communities, find wisdom & inspiration from the streets and meet some new friends along the way.
After a hugely successful inaugural World Wide Wander in 2017, we are looking to go even bigger, bolder and wiser – and we need your help. Last year, in just three days, our volunteers ran 36 events in 12 countries worldwide from Sydney to Sofia, Melbourne to Mexico City, Nairobi to Nottingham – it really was worldwide and wanderful.
You can see highlights from the weekend here:
Get involved by bringing the magic of Street Wisdom to your local community, wherever you are in the world. Not only will you be giving people the tools to find answers and solve problems using their everyday environment, you’ll also be bringing your community together to meet, share and inspire.
If you’d like to run an event, just sign up, download our free toolkit and follow the instructions to set up the event on our site. All you need is some friends, work colleagues, family members…and a street! We’ll supply everything you need. And if you’re happier participating, check our events page and social media to find out where you can join in. The list is growing by the day.

Street Wisdom is a form of “walking-based problem solving” – a mix of psychology, mindfulness and cognitive science that teaches participants to connect with their urban environment to tap into the wisdom of the streets. At the centre of Street Wisdom lies the idea that every moment is extraordinary and every street is full of inspiration. Few of us give ourselves time or permission to really focus on the signs and signals that we normally ignore, rich stimulus that can help us learn something new.
