Walkability Leaders Celebrate Earth Day by Expanding Advocacy Skills

Walking and walkable communities play a critical role in addressing climate change and increasing the overall health of our planet. Almost 30% of greenhouse gas emissions comes from transportation. Many of those trips could be replaced with active commutes. What better way to foster active, thriving communities than to cultivate home-grown walkability champions to help lead the way?

This month, we celebrated Earth Day by welcoming 27 stellar local advocates into the Walking College training program. These passionate community leaders will embark on a journey to actualize accessible, active mobility from the ground up in each of their communities –– increasing sustainable transportation options in urban, suburban, and rural neighborhoods throughout the country.
