The Glasgow Convention Bureau, Scotland, has launched a new online walking challenge with World Walking. The challenge allows delegates to explore some of Glasgow’s sustainable initiatives virtually.
Keeping in line with the CVBs People Make Glasgow Greener strategy, the walking tours align with Goal three: Good Health & Wellbeing on the UN Sustainable Development Goals, encouraging delegates joining a conference online to use their non-conference time to step away from their computers and get moving.
Wendy Russell, international manager, Glasgow Convention Bureau, said: “To welcome delegates logging in from home, the virtual walks are an ideal addition to our #VirtualGlasgow toolkit to help online delegates feel part of the live conference experience by enjoying and learning about their virtual host city.”
Aileen Crawford, head of tourism and conventions, Glasgow Convention Bureau, added: “Although we are all delighted to be welcoming back in-person conferences to our city, we appreciate that hybrid meetings have offered our clients a new way of connecting with their members and communities and expanding knowledge to a wider audience. To support those delegates who are unable to join us in person, these virtual walks help our on-line delegates experience Glasgow by walking around our sustainable city virtually.”
Duncan Galbraith, founder of World Walking, commented: “World Walking is thrilled to be partnering with the award-winning Glasgow Convention Bureau to enable delegates to use the steps they walk every day to explore some of the many sustainable initiatives in and around Glasgow.”
