The Walking College

The Walking College

Thank you for the outpouring of interest in the 2020 Walking College fellowship, which will continue as planned even amid the Covid-19 pandemic. We expect to get back to applicants by early-mid April about the status of applications.
We appreciate your patience!

The Walking College is a remote-learning program that imparts fellows with the knowledge and skills they need to become leaders in creating stronger, more equitable, sustainable, and liveable communities. Over six months, fellows complete a series of modules addressing topics including the basics of walkable design, how to navigate the public policy process, effectively engage decision makers, and how to foster a local advocacy movement. By the end of the program, they will have completed a blueprint for a series of short and longer term strategies to tackle an identified problem in their communities.
