GARY TURK

#SocksUp Ambassador

When we started looking at ways to launch this campaign we saw the film In Our Nature by Gary Turk and it resonated with everyone. Gary is an award winning spoken word poet who also happens to be an outdoor instructor, a perfect match. His film Look Up made him an internet sensation and he continues to use this popularity as a film maker and live performer to challenge issues that face society. We are immensely proud Gary choose to become an ambassador for this campaign and let us use In Our Nature as the basis for the ScreensDown film.

The amount of time we spend looking at a screen is driving well documented concerns about the negative health and wellBEing side effects of screen use.

We believe “Little things matter”

As such we are focussed on helping to encourage you, your family and your friends to swap a little of your screen time for sometime in the outdoors with all the positive benefits for your health and wellbeing.

#SocksUp Partners

We have partnered with several organisations that will help you pull your socks up!

Walk1000miles

Change your life one step at a time.
Did you know it takes less than an hour a day walking to hit 1000 miles in 12 months? Try the fun, free & flexible challenge 99.9% of participants recommend to a friend: it’s just 2.74 miles a day. You don’t need to change your life; you do need to stick at it; you WILL feel an amazing difference.

Mountains for the Mind

Mountains for the Mind is a new campaign from Trail magazine promoting the benefits of being outside. We believe in the power of the mountains to change lives and improve mental health – this campaign aims to spread the word far and wide.

Duke of Edinburgh Award

For the past seven decades, DofE has inspired and transformed the lives of millions of young people from all walks of life. From volunteering to physical activities, life skills to expeditions, achieving a DofE Award is a passport to a brighter future, valued by employers and universities.

 

#Socksup is not an anti- screen or anti “social media” campaign.

It is an initiative to question how and when we use them. For example, take a phone on a walk as a camera and a safety device but make the decision to not take any calls, read any notifications or messages or post on social media whilst you are out.  Enjoy the time walking with friends or family, there is plenty of time to tell the world about it when you get home.

PULL YOUR SOCKS UP AND HELP YOUR

HEALTH

Time is immensely precious, we seem to have less of it than ever before and unfortunately it is often a lunchtime walk or a morning run that gets sacrificed. Many of us spend our working lives a slave to a screen, spending over a day a week staring at one! Swapping some of that screen time for a walk or a run could dramatically improve your physical health.

HAPPINESS

There’s no doubt Smartphones and social media have changed our world forever, for the better. However too much of a good thing can sometimes be harmful as we start to lose the art of face to face conversation. A balanced screen diet should be as important as a balance food diet.

FUN AND ADVENTURE

Social media is an incredible powerful tool to find fun and adventure, but all too often find ourselves looking at photos thinking I wish been there! Scrolling on down the screen trying to find out what everyone else has done. Put down the phone and celebrate the Joy of Missing Out because you were too busy to doing something amazing!

FRIENDS & FAMILY

We love spending time with those we love and social media keeps us informed better than ever before. However when screens start to come between us they can become a hindrance, a frustration and the start of an argument. Consider agreeing some simple rules with friends and family to keep screens secondary to relationships such as no screens at the dining table, or only using your phone as a camera when on a walk.
