TEDxLSE - Adam Weymouth - Giving Power to Strangers

Adam Weymouth is a writer and environmental campaigner. In 2010 he walked more than 5000km from England to Istanbul, the culmination of several years research into pilgrimage and protest walking. The journey lasted eight months, passing through France, Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia Herzegovina, Montenegro, Kosovo, Macedonia, Bulgaria and Turkey. His work examines how experiencing the world at a walking pace can alter how we see our place in it, psychologically and environmentally, and what we might be losing as walking declines. He is also interested to what extent a culture of hospitality still exists in a world where we are increasingly taught to fear the stranger. He is currently writing a work of fiction about the walk, and planning the next one.
