Walkability: The Health and Wellness Equation

Webinar //

Date:

Aug 06 2015, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST

Description

Walking is more than basic transportation and recreation; it is the key to health, longevity and affordable living. If we want more equitable communities- — accessible — then walking must become a natural activity again. 

We are all change agents. In this session, Dan Burden, one of the earliest pioneers in North America's walkability movement, who is credited with coining the terms 'road diets,' 'walking audits,' 'photomorphs' and inspiring Complete Streets conversions since 1991, will be joined by his colleague Samantha Thomas of Blue Zones to demonstrate to us the added lift given to us by the health movement. Participants will also hear from local Blue Zones experts from Fort Worth, Texas, and the Beach Cities, California.

Date and Time:  Thursday, August 6 at 2-3 p.m. Eastern, 11 a.m.-12 p.m.Pacific

Presenters: 

  • Dan Burden, Director of Innovation & Inspiration, Blue Zones
  • Samantha Thomas, Built Environment Manager, Blue Zones
