Walk the World unites Informa colleagues in all five Divisions to support some worthwhile causes and help transform the lives of people across the world by connecting them with the knowledge and networks they need to thrive.
For 2017, each Informa office is nominating a Walk the World charity to raise money for. Colleagues taking part in Walk the World are asked to donate money to that charity. This can start as soon as you register as we ask all colleagues to donate a minimum of £10/US$15 (amount might differ in other locations, see local comms for details) to their office charity to complete the registration process. To make your donation, visit your walk on the Global Walks page.
If your office is raising money through CrowdRise or JustGiving, you can visit your walk page listed under Global Walks and click “start fundraising”. This will enable you to set up your own fundraising page and collect money from friends and colleagues. To claim your day off, simply show your fundraising total or donation to your line manager and book a “walk the world” day on e-days or your local HR system.
This year, keeping track of how much we’ve raised collectively is a little bit complicated! To ensure everything is counted, please make sure your walk leader knows your total no later than 30 June (only applies if you have not raised money or donated through the official CrowdRise or JustGiving links on your walk page).
Win money for charity! Informa will give out bonus donation prizes to office charities. The more money you raise and the more participants your office has, the higher the chance of winning a prize!

2 When your division reaches 25% participation – win £3,000 more for charity
