The End of Walking?

6:00 p.m. | Tuesday, April 23, 2019

However, many experts believe that the health of cities — and their residents — is directly tied to the opportunity to walk. How can we encourage walking and biking in this new era of convenience? Public health and mobility experts will discuss the role that design and policy play in supporting active transportation.
