Our aims are up

Posted on Updated on

Our Aims page is up! Any club or society formed under the CSA is required to identify its clear aims and objectives. For our walking society, this is quite straightforward – our aim is to promote walking amongst students and staff at Cranfield University.

Thinking about how we then perceive walking, I reflected on our events and feedback from students attending our walks. Soon I realized that walking is certainly much more than purely a physical activity good for your wellbeing. Of course, it is a means of transport (in spite of what our Transport team thinks) but our walks also serve, among other purposes, as educational activities and language classes.

See the list of benefits we identified on Our Aims page. Is there a purpose or a benefit of our walks that we have forgotten about? Would you like to share with us your experience from attending one of our events? We like to hear from you!-)

    Met with Paul from Cranfield village today as we were trialling a walk for this coming Saturday 19 November. Paul pointed out that our aims are missing the word “rambling” as we seem to do both – walk for pleasure (= ramble) and walk for other purpose (e.g. walking from Cranfield village to university = walk) Also we should say “our aim is to promote walking particularly amongst students and staff at Cranfield University” which is about being inclusive (as oppose to excluding others from outside of the university). Thank you Paul for your useful suggestions!
