Calling all walkers, ramblers, surfers, explorers and adventurers! We are looking for members of the public with emotional connections to a walk, beach or landscape to share their story whether it has improved your wellbeing, played a significant part in your life or even changed your life.

It could be watching the waves crash at the mighty Worm’s Head in Gower, relaxing on the beautiful Barafundle Bay, hiking up Sugar Loaf in Abergavenny, starting your walking adventure at Ogwen Cottage, or any other outdoor place in Wales that you have a special connection with.

If selected, rugby star Jamie Roberts, who spent all the weekends of his childhood years walking and exploring with his family, will come to visit you at your special place and go on your walk or adventure with you. Your story and the experience will be captured on film and shared on our social channels and website.

We want to use your stories to inspire others to connect more with nature.

We will also be working with psychologists at Cardiff University to investigate whether time spent outdoors can help to improve wellness. So, you will be playing a part in some research to identify whether having an emotional connection with specific outdoor spaces can provide the best benefits for our wellbeing.

If you’d like to find out more, please send us an email with your contact details and a brief outline of your experiences to naturestories@wearecowshed.co.uk
