American Trails Webinar - The Role of Trails in Healthy Community Design (Thu. 3 Dec, 2015 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm)

American Trails presents this Webinar on December 3, 2015, at 10:00 a.m. Pacific (1:00 p.m. Eastern). Presented by Mark Fenton, a transportation, planning, and public health consultant, author, PBS television host, and active transportation advocate; with an introduction by Bob Searns, The Greenway Team.


Public health experts say Americans need to be more physically active to stave off a growing epidemic of chronic diseases associated with sedentary lifestyles. And many believe trails can be central to the more walkable and bike-friendly communities that make this more likely to occur.

But it's also recognized that economic and environmental health accompanies these public health benefits, leading to a triple bottom line associated with healthy community design.

Mark Fenton, one of the nation's experts in walkability, will offer a number of how-to solutions for creating walk, bike and fitness-friendly communities with success story examples. He will share how it's not just about trails, but also land use decisions and site designs to create truly active environments. He will discuss planning and design approaches and how to make the case with leaders and decision makers.
