'Navigating Cittaslow'

Dr Tessa Holland & Dr Helen Jarvis discuss their work in a short film.

Newcastle University social geographers Tessa Holland and Helen Jarvis recently have produced a short film ‘Navigating Slow’ to celebrate collaboration with @CittaslowUK the UK network of slow towns currently representing Berwick upon Tweed, Aylsham, Mold, Llangollen and Perth.
