The World Wide Wander


Solution finding. One step at a time.

There are some big hairy challenges out there, huh? The climate crisis. Global conflict. Polarisation and loneliness. Not to mention personal ones – finding a job, mental health, relationships, healing a grief.

We’re all wondering how to do things differently. But what if the answers are all around us, all the time? That’s why we created the World Wide Wander! We’re not going to solve these questions by just sitting there. Let’s get up, get out and get answers. Join us Friday 27th September 2024, in-person or online. It’s time.

To saunter, to be slovenly (The Dialect of Cumberland – Robert Ferguson, 1873). Rarely used in Cumbria now but has a meaning of to walk slowly, to amble, to walk with no particular purpose. Used for example in the ballad Billy Watson’s Lonnin written by Alexander Craig Gibson of Harrington, Cumbria in 1872 “Yan likes to trail ow’r t’ Sealand-fields an’ watch for t’ commin’ tide, Or slare whoar t’Green hes t’ Ropery an’ t’ Shore of ayder side “(Translation: One likes to trail over to Sealand Fields and watch for the coming tide, Or slare over to where the Green has the ropery and the Shore on the other side) Billy Watson’s Lonning (lonning – dialect for lane) still exists and can be found at Harrington, Cumbria.
