NEWConnective’s Walk #1: Walk & Talk for 2

donderdag 1 juli om 12:00 Nieuwe Herengracht 18

The most meaningful city walk

Take this interactive Walk & Talk through the city of Amsterdam with a friend and discover unknown parts of yourself and your strolling partner — in your own time. During this walk, you will pass several spots in the city that we selected just for you. These spots will inspire you to reflect together on what you value in life. The walk takes about 1,5 hours, but you can extend it by taking as many breaks as you like. Good talks may last for hours.

How does it work?

First, register to get your map by filling in your name and email below. After you click submit, you will receive an email with instructions and a personal link to the map (this can take a couple of hours). Don’t worry, we won’t use your email address for anything else.

Go to the starting point (Nieuwe Herengracht 18) and click start for your first instructions. The rest of the links on the map will lead you to questions that are connected to the selected spots.

You can do the tour whenever you want, for as many times as you like. Have fun!

Why Walk & Talk?

Walking is one of the healthiest things to do, for your mind and body. Apart from the physical benefits, it also does a lot for your brain. While walking, it becomes easier to organize and reflect on your thoughts.

Walking and reflecting often go hand in hand, here’s why:

  • It strengthens the unity between body and mind;
  • It helps you to direct your attention, to focus;
  • Walking not only literally sets you in motion, but also mentally and emotionally;
  • It gives you peace of mind, which creates space to reflect.

By walking with someone you can talk to each other about your reflections. Try to really listen to each other and ask questions, so you get to know yourself, the other, and the city even better.
