Walk and Talk with Sustainability

Filed under: Latest news — Heather Leathley @ 10:54 am

Keeping on the move will be the focus of two Sustainability activities at the Southend Campus starting on Tuesday 26 June.

You can learn good techniques for walking and pick up some tips on posture to make sure you are comfortable at work from Karen Turrell of Simply Stride. She will be delivering two one hour sessions for Southend staff to encourage activity that’s good for your body and your brain on Tuesday 26 June and Thursday 28 June 12.30pm to 1.30pm.

Participants can book a place through HR Organiser – just search for ‘simply stride’ and choose the date you’d like to attend.

Sustainability Engagement Officer Daisy Malt said: “The two sessions will be identical, we’ve just created two options to allow for as many people as possible to join. Featuring advice on good posture and a walk outside, Karen will equip you with the basics to improve wellbeing and hopefully encourage you to walk more on breaks.”

On Wednesday 27 June, through the South Essex Active Travel Ideas in Motion programme, there will be drop in sessions on cycle training, security and safety, personal travel guidance, bus and rail ticket discounts and car-sharing.

You can find out more at the Gateway Building reception 12.00pm to 12.50pm and in TF.2.27 1pm to 2pm.
