Creating Walkable Communities

Speaker:
Dan Burden, Walkable Communities, Inc.

Program Description:
Can you walk to work? Can your kids walk to school? Walking is one of the best ways to improve your health. Yet many of us live in communities where a “simple walk” is anything by easy. “Walkability” of our communities has an impact on health, traffic calming, pedestrian safety and economic development. Dan Burden, nationally acclaimed speaker and planner, shares ways to create walkable communities where a daily walk isn’t just a recreational activity but a regular part of conducting the business of our lives. (This broadcast was sponsored by the NYS Healthy Heart Program.)

Objectives:
As a result of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the psychological effect of different approaches to community development
  • Describe how walkable communities can improve the public’s health.

Satellite broadcast originally aired April 20, 2000
