This chapter examines the ‘Walking Interconnections: Performing conversations of sustainability’ project and focuses on the potential contributions of disabled people to sustainability planning. It talks about the interventions that the project and its outcomes have staged not only in environmental discourse and debate about inclusive public space, but also in representations of walking practices. Walking Interconnections brought together disabled people and sustainability practitioners to share walking encounters in public places. Through mapping, talking, walking and reflecting together they entered each other's life worlds. The chapter shows how their experiences are caught in photographs, maps, and Going for a Walk, a verbatim play crafted by Deirdre Heddon from the recorded conversations of the walkers.

Keywords:   Walking Interconnections, disabled people, sustainability planning, environmental discourse, walking practices, public places, Going for a Walk, Deidre Heddon
