Street Wisdom

Answers are everywhere! Get out of the rut and find new unique ways to solve problems outside of the boardroom.

Spending time outdoors is a great way to get your creative juices flowing. Whether you’re struggling with writer’s block or can’t figure out the solution to a problem at work, taking a walk outside can help clear your mind and trigger new ideas. Research has shown that people who are up and moving around are more likely to be creative than people who are sitting down.

Street Wisdom is the brainchild of David Pearl, an innovator in business, the arts and social change.  Having spent years exploring how our urban environment can deliver fresh insight, in 2013 he set up the first Street Wisdom event with the help of Chris Baréz-Brown. 

Since then, the movement has grown to 73 countries and counting, sharing the power of Street Wisdom through communities across the globe.

The practice is simple to learn and hard to forget.

What is Street Wisdom?

Street Wisdom is an everyday creative practice you use as you walk. A smart fusion of mindfulness, neuroscience and wellness, it unlocks our minds and unblocks our creativity with every step.  

How does it work?

It’s a simple idea, based on the proposition that the environment and people around us are full of wisdom we largely overlook or ignore. Street Wisdom allows us to tune into the rich stimulus and learn all that latent wisdom.

Who is it for?

It’s for anyone who has questions about their life and/or work and wants some fresh answers. It is relevant for anyone tackling a challenge in their working life,  figuring out what's next, struggling with the day-to-day stuff or seeking that inspirational breakthrough.
