Friday October 30, 9:00 – 10:30am
Start with an interactive discussion about easy, fun and effective strategies for raising awareness of challenges facing people who walk and ways they can improve them. We’ll also talk about road safety audits and walking tours. Both can be great ways to develop partnerships, document needs and inspire government agencies to make commitments. After that, we’ll take a walking tour that enables participants to experience challenges that most people would miss if they were viewing conditions via google maps or windshield surveys. While walking, we’ll identify problems, recommend solutions, and talk about next steps and challenges to moving from recommendations into reality.
This session has a Walk& Talk component, please dress for outdoor activity.
Led by Sally Flocks, President and CEO, PEDS, and George Branyan, Pedestrian Coordinator, DC Department of Transportation (DDOT)
