This Funzing Experience:

**WHOLE TOUR IS OUTSIDE**

What if there was a walking tour that was fun, stimulating and helped you discover hidden Hackney – then left you feeling inspired and excited about the future and your own part in making change? Cut through the negativity while you discover some of the hidden worlds in our own backyard! Limited to 5 people for an intimate safe experience. All pics are pre-Covid. I will wear a mask and socially-distance and encourage others to.

“...connected me to my area and community and inspired me to get involved” (Thilo)

Leave feeling more connected to your community, more hopeful about the future and with some invitations to get involved if you want to be part of the good stuff, as how Social Enterprise Borough Hackney trailblazes yet again. Rediscover the local to help indie business survive Covid19 and keep East London quirky.

Experience includes:
On a relatively short (socially distanced) walk between Dalston and Stoke Newington, I'll reveal to you the worldchangers who are busy right under our noses.

We'll stop by 7-8 locations where I'll link the alternative history of Hackney with today's changemakers. Two of them will be markets, so you'll have a chance to take in the sights and smells and even grab some tasty snacks to help local business.

There's a lot of doom and gloom at the moment, yet Hackney is full of amazing people doing world-changing things every day. Normally I share this stuff with universities and foreign visitors, but this year I'm on a mission to show people how brilliant their own back yard is. We can all enjoy more carbon-free wonder at home, if we are curious about where we live?

How might a market change what we eat? Who is helping us stay well in lockdown London? Hear how exciting initiatives in Social Enterprise Borough Hackney are tackling issues from food waste to climate change to exclusion from education - and even improving our mental health. Get inspired. Get hopeful. Get involved.

"...one of the best experiences I've had in London for years. The tour was fascinating and inspiring, and Simon was a brilliant blend of knowledgeable, friendly and interesting. We got such amazing insight into the local area, I learned a ton and I only live down the road in Hackney, but it was also really interesting and accessible..." (Elizabeth)
