One of the goals of the NYS Prevention Agenda is to promote attention to the health implications of policies and actions that occur outside of the health sector, including transportation and public safety. Complete streets policies create safer and smarter multi-modal transportation networks for all pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users of all ages and abilities. Complete streets policies are ultimately geared towards promoting healthy lifestyles.   Learn how two New York communities have used public awareness campaigns to encourage their residents to use walking and biking facilities or trail networks that have been established as a result of complete streets projects.

Learning Objectives
After this program participants will be able to:

  • Describe two public awareness campaigns to encourage use of complete streets projects.
  • Identify different ways campaign messages can be delivered to the public.
  • Explain how these campaigns help the public to advocate for more improvements.
