Empower Your Community with Walking Initiativesdetails
2:00 – 3:00 p.m. EST; 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. PST
America Walks and the Alliance for Biking & Walking will discuss the roles their national organizations play in empowering communities to advocate for walking and walkability, and the YMCA of Greater Long Beach will provide the local perspective on developing successful walking initiatives.
Topics of discussion will include:
1) The Walking Action Network — a program created to assist local communities with developing walking strategies designed to engage partners and local advocates in the walking movement,
2) Information about coaching, trainings and other resources available from the Alliance for Biking & Walking, and
3) Advocacy strategies and resources that can be implemented at the local level.
This is an interactive discussion with call participants that promises to be an exciting exchange of ideas and strategies.
