Slí na Sláinte — Path of health
Paths of Health is an initiative that started on Ireland in 1995. Their aim was to influence more people taking up low-impact exercise. To increase average health levels in their population and to prevent cardio-vascular diseases.
Paths of health now exists in many Irish, German, Scandinavian, Italian, Dutch, Canadian cities.
Paths of Health
On Ireland there are over 190 paths sponsored by "Irish Heart Foundation"
In Sweden there are 110 official paths Sponsored by "Heart- and Lung-diseases association"
Sign posts are placed every 1.000 meters in parks and in other promenades, so that exercisers can see how far they walked or ran or biked, no matter where they started and finished on the path.
So that increases options for people to come and go as they please, and participate at their own rate and distance.
There are also options on these web pages to create your own calendar and diary, to keep track of your distances and progress on speed.
There will be lots of options on making interaction possible with others… I got some ideas for the concepting phase, let me know if you want to join the "virtual team"! I will appreciate all input/feedback/ideas, no matter how silly they are :) hehe
