2019 Webinars (October-December)
Hard to believe that we’re wrapping up another year of great webinars. Be sure to mark your calendars for the remaining broadcasts in our 2019 series.
College and university campuses are often described as microcosms of society, with many of the attributes of a small town or city – housing, restaurants, markets, and entertainment. And, like their larger counterparts, they often have similar issues concerning walking and active transportation and provide valuable lessons in larger scale applications. Join us as we explore examples of how universities and colleges are promoting walkability and movability in their communities. This webinar is intended for those just starting out on the walking path as well as those interested in learning more about the topic.
Beyond the Physical: Mental and Social Benefits of Walkable Communities (November 20, 2019 at 2pm Eastern, 11am Pacific)
Places for People: Highlights from the National Walking Summit-Columbus (December 11, 2019 at 2pm Eastern, 11am Pacific)
In January we explored the new HHS Physical Activity Guidelines and how communities are promoting physical activity. As a next step and in response to the positive feedback we received, America Walks will offer more information on programs and strategies communities are using to engage individuals to get moving. This webinar is intended for those who are familiar with topics and issues related to walking and walkability.
