    Abstract

    Our walk proposal is inspired by the ‘Happy Accidents’ track which asks how the opportunities for chance meetings and creative connections between researchers and/or designers can be maximized. We propose to experiment with walking as a means of achieving this for design researchers while attending a conference, while also offering an early morning walk as a means of supporting design researcher’s wellbeing during a conference.
