How will these National Walking Summits be different than the previous conferences?
These National Walking Summits will be smaller (200-300 people) and only contain one day’s worth of content. They will feature more local and regional presenters and programs and contain a collective action workshop focused on pushing forward a specific question or issue for the region.
What is a collective action workshop?
Designed by the local host committee, the collective action workshop will be an opportunity for conference attendees to use their knowledge and experiences to move forward a specific question or issue for the host region/city. These workshops will be hands on exercises designed to develop skills, build connections, provide feedback, and move the needle on walkability.
