January Webinar: The Walking College: Building the Local Capacity of the National Walking Movement

Wednesday, January 20 at 3:00 p.m. EDT
This webinar will describe the Walking College and present research on community outcomes from this fellowship program, which is designed to build the capacity of local change agents to increase walking and improve walkability in their communities. During the 6-month course, Walking College Fellows study online materials, complete community assignments, take part in video discussion forums/coaching sessions, and develop a Walking Action Plan (WAP) with community goals and an implementation strategy. The results of an evaluation of the community impact of Fellows' WAPs will be presented, documenting positive outcomes in categories including walking events/programs, public policy, and new infrastructure.

Great American Rail-Trail Launch

The Great American Rail-Trail is Rails-to-Trails Conservancy's most ambitious project to date and will prove to be a national treasure as it unites millions of people over thousands of miles of trail. As the nation's first cross-country multi-use trail, the trail will be entirely walkable and bikeable, connecting people of all ages and abilities with america's diverse landscapes and communities. RTC launched the route in 2019, and it is already 52% complete with more trail to be added annually.
