5/2 Webinar: Creating Active Routes to Everyday Destinations

Updated: Jan 2, 2020

Creating safe and convenient places for people to incorporate bicycling, walking and other forms of active transportation into daily life improves health. However, many communities lack the infrastructure that supports activity friendly routes that lead to everyday destinations and allows for safe, active transportation for regular trips. This webinar will focus on how we can expand opportunities for active transportation between home, school, work, and other everyday destinations.

Ken Rose and Chris Kochtitzky, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, will share their organization’s work, both directly and through their more than 60 state, university, and local grant recipients across the country. TJ McCourt, with the City of Raleigh’s Department of Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources, will describe his City’s efforts to improve walkable connections to everyday destinations for all community members.

Following their presentations, the panelists will be available to respond to questions from webinar participants.
