Footprints of Faith

Walks for schools through culture, history and belief in Cambridge

These two walks for primary aged children in the city of Cambridge show how people of faith have changed the course of history in the fields of human rights and science.

Each walk has six stopping places where children can hear and reflect on the story of someone asscociated with that place and take part in linked activities. The human rights walk includes William Wilberforce, former slave Olaudah Equiano and mathematician Philippa Fawcett.
