Harnessing the outdoors for health with Maxwell Ayamba
By Blue Earth Summit
Maxwell Ayamba is a journalist, academic and long-standing champion of countryside access for minority communities.
In 1996, Maxwell arrived in the UK from Ghana after being awarded a scholarship to study journalism at Cardiff University. He went on to complete his Masters at Sheffield Hallam University and there he stayed as a research academic.
In 2004, inspired by wanting to encourage other men to get out there and live a healthier, more active lifestyle, he co-founded the walking group, 100 Black Men Walking for Health (now called Walk4Health Group). Little did he know the impact it would have, it even inspired a play ‘Black Men Walking’ and led him to meet Joanna Lumley as part of her itv series Home Sweet Home.
Maxwell’s passion is contagious and his knowledge is seemingly endless, host Laura Nesbitt chats to him about his story, access to the outdoors and gets a lot of book recommendations too!
