Open streets initiatives temporarily close streets to automobiles so that people may use them for any activity except driving—walking, jogging, bicycling, dancing or almost any other physical activity. The open streets movement in North America has grown from only 11 initiatives in 2005 to over 80 in 2012, with more initiatives being launched each year. A free webinar produced by APBP and the Open Streets Project includes a history of the Open Streets movement, discussion of the health and equity benefits of Open Streets programs, and an introduction to the Open Streets Project interactive website and tools for organizing an event. The webinar also features case studies of a large city's open streets program (Chicago) and a smaller city's program (Somerville, Mass.). Participants will learn about best practices in North and South America and additional resources that can provide further guidance for cities organizing new initiatives. The webinar is free and will be recorded for future viewing.
