These walks are led by individuals that wish to stream their walking tours from their phone using Zoom.
We have compiled a number of different resources to aid those that are interested in using this format. We are not restricting the use of other technologies like Google Hangouts, Instagram Live, or Facebook Live for those that are more comfortable using another application. We do ask that you consider the following factors below. As part of the walk submission form, you will be asked to include a URL link.
the technology that is used for the live stream must produce a URL link that we can share in advance
participants must be able to access your live stream through a video and/or audio link
the technology must be free to use for participants
We recognize that some technologies limit the number of participants or the amount of time that the technology can be used for a video and/or audio stream. This is the case with Zoom, which limits participants to 100 and a maximum time of 40 minutes. Although this presents some constraints for walk leaders it inevitably allows us to still hold a video/audio stream for free.
We encourage everyone to read through the tips and resources found below before completing the walk submission form. If you require additional support please do not hesitate to contact our team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be sure to practice physical distancing with self-solitary walks either alone or with close family members in uncrowded areas.
