Walk the World AMS 2020- Think Global- Act Local!
*sorry this year we are unable to provide WTW t-shirts for new team members
Throughout July, take a 5km or a 10km walk exploring your neighbourhood.
More comfortable staying indoors? We challenge you to complete 5,000 steps a day for five days around the house.
There some great free apps you can download on your phone to keep track of your progress including:
- Apple Health
- Walk Meter
- Nike Run Club
Post your screenshots and photos to Portal and challenge 5 other colleagues to do the same using the hashtag #Take5WTW
If you feel unwell, are displaying COVID symptoms or have been in contact with anyone who has been infected in the past 14 days please stay at home.
Avoid crowded locations and confined spaces
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth- consider wearing a face mask to help with this.
Wash hands before and when you return home from your walk.
Maintain 1.5m distance between yourself and others.
If you would like to meet up with a colleague, please arrange to do so in an open space like a park and maintain social distancing measures.
There's no party this year, but that doesn't mean we can't have a little fun while we get to know each other a little better.
How well have you got to know your local area in the past few months? Take us on a journey around your neighbourhood and show off some of the best local sites.
Upload images onto the Amsterdam Office Hub on Portal with the hashtag #WTW20AMS and don’t forget to like your colleagues’ posts!

About the charity
There are still nearly 822 million hungry people in the world. Almost the majority of them live in the countryside. In some cases, hunger is caused by drought or war. But the vast majority of hungry people are chronically hungry. They have too little or too one-sided food day in, day out. The Hunger Project believes our generation can end chronic hunger - by 2030.
Hunger is about more than just-food. It is mainly about people. We do not see millions of mouths to feed, but millions of enterprising and resilient people. Because hungry people are not the problem - they are the solution. That is the philosophy of The Hunger Project. That is why we in Africa, Asia, and Latin America invest in the power of people to develop themselves so that they can continue on their own. The Hunger Project is working on a change of mentality by making people dream of a future without hunger. And then she helps to make that dream come true herself.
We always work with an integrated approach: for all causes at the same time. We simply cannot end hunger permanently and permanently without also working on inequality. And to health. And access to clean water. Vaccinations. And so on. Our work, therefore, contributes to each of the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals.
