e-Trails National demonstration project
Sustainable Development Funding will help Ramblers Cymru undertake a project that will test novel uses of mobile technology to deliver facts and information along the Newgale to St Davids section of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail. The funding will contribute towards this ‘Proof of Concept’ or demonstration phase of a wider Audience Development Project. The overall project aim is to introduce new people to the joy and benefits of walking and increase the enjoyment of walking for existing walkers. This demonstration phase involves gathering a range of digital data and using mobile technology e.g. mobile phones and iPod players to present the data to the public at various locations along the coast path. Volunteers will test the walking enhancement tool, which should allow walkers to download walks, routes and other media content e.g. a podcast from a National Park Ranger, to make their walking experience more informative and enjoyable. This approach aims to attract younger more IT functional individuals to walking as a sustainable healthy activity.
