Walking and Walkability in Rural Communities Webinar (October 13, 2016)

Different environments or types of communities offer different opportunities and challenges for promoting walking and walkability. One of the most common questions we get at America Walks is about resources available for walking in rural communities. This webinar discusses some of the challenges that come with working in rural environments and a selection of resources that provide unique opportunities to promote walking and walkability in rural communities. Presenters from WalkBoston talk about their work in promoting walking and walkability across the state of Massachusetts followed by resources and research available at Safe Routes to School National Partnership and Active Living Research.
