We're hosting two workshops through our program, the Initiative for Bicycle and Pedestrian Innovation (IBPI), this summer. Learn more about the second workshop on "Bikeway Design" (Aug 13 - 17) here.
This three-day workshop offers strategies for building and strengthening communities around walking and bicycling. For example, Open Streets initiatives temporarily close streets to automobile traffic so that people may use them for walking, bicycling, dancing, playing, and socializing. With hundreds of documented initiatives in the Americas, Open Streets are an increasingly popular way for cities to achieve environmental, social, economic, and public health benefits. A complementary approach, Tactical Urbanism, leverages temporary low-solutions to engineering problems to help community members reimagine their streets.
This course offers insights and strategies to make the case for policymakers, inspire communities, and build a movement toward healthier, more active cities.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Urban planners, community advocates, policymakers, municipal staff and other transportation professionals interested in nurturing walking and cycling in their communities.
