Webbed Walking, sharing inspiring stories online

Abstract Remit

Stories are part of everyone's lives and the Feet First website has chosen narrative interaction  to encourage participation in both walking and sharing ideas. The stories which are placed on line are situated in the local environment and provide inspiration and ideas that provide local solutions. The  use of the web in this instance is largely participatory, and based on open source media through the use of citizen – centric principles.
