We would like to invite you to Camino Encounters, when we will be walking Ben Wigley’s film – Camino to COP – Of Walking On Thin Ice – from London to Bristol for the Encounters Film Festival where it is being shown for the first time on 27th September. The film is very much a tribute to our Camino to COP, the 56-day journey made on foot from London and Bristol to Glasgow for the COP26 climate conference in September and October last year; a tribute to the community formed and connections made, but the film also invites us and others to question what’s happened since, what action still needs to be taken, what came out of the COP process itself…?

Camino to COP26
We made it! We walked 500 miles and we reached Glasgow. We created a theatre piece about our experiences on the walk. You can watch it via the link here and embedded below.
Please do share with everyone, we are still very excited about this!

Want to walk with us?
We are delighted to welcome Day-Walkers and those who are able to organise their own overnight accommodation to join us on the Camino. To join us for a day, there is no need to register, just turn up at our accommodation in the morning. Departure is between 08:00 and 09:00 and this gets confirmed the night before on the WhatsApp groups and at the top of this page. Do be sure to bring a packed lunch, sensible waterproof clothes and join the relevant WhatsApp groups.
We are united by our faith; a faith that we can advocate and influence and be the change that we want for our world. We choose to walk to COP26 as a practice of that faith, an act of connection with the earth on which we walk and the people with whom we walk and the communities through which we pass; and we make our way in kinship with the peoples and creatures of the earth who are suffering and displaced by climate and ecological breakdown. We do so peacefully and lawfully, ready to engage and learn, because we care and we have hope.
