National Walking Summit
America Walks is excited to bring the 2017 National Walking Summit to St. Paul, MN. The National Walking Summit is the premier opportunity for community advocates, nonprofit representatives, government officials, and transit, health, and planning professionals to share best practices and stories, increase the visibility of key issues, build support for the walking movement, and create momentum for the work ahead. The power of walking just go more powerful and the creation of vital and vibrant communities more feasible and closer to bridging the divides and disparities that challenge us.
Attendees of the Summit will:
• See St. Paul by foot with one of our locally designed Learning-from Place workshops
• Receive an exclusive welcome from Mayor Christopher Coleman at our Opening Reception
• Learn how you can take lessons from St. Paul home to your community with breakout sessions including partnering with business districts and Stop for Me campaigns
