Your movement matters is a collaborative research project funded by eight of the UK’s leading walking, climbing and outdoor leisure organisations, examining the demographics of people who participate in the different styles of walking and climbing.

“It's important to us that the survey and research are inclusive of the Black and Global Majority and linguistic minority communities in our society," explained Professor Vini Lander, Director of the Centre for Race, Education and Decoloniality at Leeds Beckett University. “These translations are an effort to ensure that people from a wide range of communities can access and engage in this really important survey.”

The survey has already been completed by over 3,000 people in the UK and Ireland and will remain open until 8th June. The results will be used across the sector to improve access to walking, climbing and camping amongst those who are currently underserved.

Whether you walk your dog in the park or scale Alpine peaks, your movement matters to us. We want to know more about your experiences and what you do.
