Members of the Common World Childhoods Research Collective are experimenting with ‘collective’ walking methods in a few different common world contexts. This kind of walking involves paying attention to encounters and interactions with more-than-human others. It requires us to practice what Isabelle Stengers refers to as ‘slow’ ‘collective thinking in the presence of others’ . The idea is to risk letting go of preconceived ideas about what we might find along the walk, and to try and remain open to being surprised and affected by the world around us. Through experimenting with collective walking we are expanding our repertoire of common worlding methods.
