INTERESTELAR TWALKING NATURE.

Air pollution still being the single biggest environmental threat to health in the UK, shortening tens of thousands of lives each year.

There is substantial evidence for the physical and mental health benefits of spending time in the natural environment.

Those who spent two hours or more a week in or around open green spaces are significantly more in good health or high wellbeing.

This time, Interestelar Twalking Challenge will focus in fighting all detrimental effects of loneliness and sedentarism through Walking, socialising and reconnecting with nature.

During the great pandemic, the Twalkers left London behind to reach the Hercules Cave in Tanger where they achieved their immortality.

Unfortunately, the planet lives today under great threat. Pollution levels have exceeded their peaks and oxygen in the air is too low. The forest is disappearing and the animals perish.

The Twalkers will begin their new adventure through desolate plains to the Sahara Gate in Tozeur (Tunez). There, hidden among a sea of salt, will they find the oasis of life, an indispensable requirement to survive this new era.
