Webinar Title: “Call to Action: Paths to Walkable Communities”
About the Webinar
The release of the Surgeon General’s Call to Action on Walking & Walkable Communities in September 2015 was a watershed moment for the walking movement. Its release provided leadership and motivation for governments, businesses and organizations to address the numerous barriers to safe, active mobility and promoted the multiple health benefits of walking. Join America Walks for a webinar on May 12 that will look at local organizations and governments who are taking action to Step It Up! in creating walkable communities.
We will hear from two recipients of the Every Body Walk! Micro Grantsfollowed by a city with one of the top Complete Streets policies in the US. Participants will have a chance to ask questions of the panel to learn how they might make their own communities great places to walk.
