Chagford local, Howard Gayton, is part of the Pilgrimage for Nature (https://www.pilgrimagefornature.com/)
They are walking 500 miles from London to Glasgow for the COP26. This is what they say: 'At this time of unique peril for our planet and all its inhabitants our plan is to deeply connect with and listen to the land we travel through, the species we encounter on the way and the communities living along the route. Our walk is a uniquely hopeful, creative and reverential kind of activism'.
Howard is a theatre director, teacher, puppeteer and professional fool. He will be using these skills to engage with community groups as they progress, discussing the environmental and ecological challenges which face us all.
