This presentation is part of the Education of Youth and Community Members in Safe Routes to School session.
How do you get a community outside onto sidewalks and trails built for walking? The City of Decatur is four square miles in size with 74 miles of streets, 62 miles of sidewalks and a variety of short trails.
Attendees will learn about ideas on how to get their community walking! Ideas include weekly and monthly walks led by staff and/or volunteers, Safe Routes to School, Walk With a Doc and some unique ideas such as Sunday Strolls and “Bright at Night” walks. The goal of this presentation is to model inexpensive and free ways that will motivate community members to get out and walk!
