Upcoming Webinars: “Economic Impact of Women Bicyclists” and “Promoting Cycling and Walking”

… and the kicker is that both of these (while free) are scheduled for the same day and the exact same start time a week from now!
Q: Are any of our local village officials making use of these free resources?

Webinar #2: “Promoting Cycling and Walking for Sustainable and Healthy Cities: Lessons from Europe and North America
Wednesday, Feb 27, 1pm – 2:30pm CST

John Pucher, a professor in the School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University in New Jersey and visiting professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, has spent more than three decades studying the difference in travel behavior and transport systems and policies in Europe, Canada, the USA, and Australia.

Pucher’s presentation will discuss policies and programs needed to make cycling and walking safe and convenient; how Dutch, Danish and German cities get nearly everyone, including women, children and seniors, on bikes for a wide range of trop purposes; and what communities in the United States can do to increase walking and bicycling while also making them safer and more convenient for everyday travel to work, school and shopping.

Details and online registration HERE.
