The Association of Bicycle and Pedestrian Professionals will share a free webinar on May 2, 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. ET, on Creating Active Routes to Everyday Destinations.  Creating safe and convenient places for people to incorporate bicycling, walking and other forms of active transportation into daily life improves health. However, many communities lack the infrastructure that supports activity friendly routes that lead to everyday destinations and allows for safe, active transportation for regular trips. This webinar will focus on how to expand opportunities for active transportation between home, school, work, and other everyday destinations.

Panelists from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will share work through state, university, and local grant recipients across the country.  Register for the webinar here.  Learn more about the CDC’s work related to health and community development strategies here.
