Flagship Annual Charity Event, Walk the World

Walk the World

With Walk the World, every Informa office around the world, as well as all homeworkers, are each year invited to participate by organising a walk in their local area.

We raise money for charity but another key objective is engagement and inclusivity – how many Informa colleagues take part and collectively, how far could the Group walk around the world?

We see this as a great way to connect and unite the many individual colleagues, offices and businesses spread across the 20+ countries where Informa operates, plus have a lot of fun at the same time!

Each Division chooses a charity linked to their day-to-day activities, ensuring colleagues felt a sense of purpose and relevance. For example, our Academic Publishing division supports READ India, a charity that promotes literacy in developing countries, while Knowledge & Networking has chosen to work with Global Angels in the past, a charity that strives to transform disadvantaged communities.

Overall, more than a third of our colleagues raised £120,000 by walking 17,200km in 30 walks in 12 countries – from the Great Wall of China, to Central Park in New York, along the River Thames in London, around historic ruins in Delhi, besides a windmill in Holland and along the beach in Florida. It’s our single biggest fundraising event.
