A collaboration between The Yarner Trust and Resurgence, this 100-mile walk is based on the newly revised book The Green London Way written by inner-city conservationist Bob Gilbert and republished by Lawrence & Wishart. The new edition includes a walk around the Olympic site perimeter and is being republished this month to raise awareness of the impact of rapid urban development including that of the London Olympic site on our cities.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of his own extraordinary peace walk, Satish Kumar will be walking with Jon on the last day (2 June) and we invite you to join them (or just Jon) for part or all of this pilgrimage. Offers of help with publicity and support are also welcome.
