Conference to Focus on 'Safe Routes To School'
AUGUST 13, 2013 - 8:30 AM to AUGUST 15, 2013 - 5:00 PM PT
The creation of fun, safe and convenient ways to walk or bike to school – that is the goal of the Safe Routes to Schools initiative. SRTS strategies support local sustainability, plus fit in with efforts to coordinate transportation designs and build healthy communities. At the upcoming national SRTS conference, attendees can access almost 60 different plenaries, keynote speakers, learning sessions, breakout sessions, networking opportunities, tours and mobile workshops on strategies that work. The conference will provide tools and implementation methods and information on how SRTS programs can enhance the lives of children and entire communities by improving health and building connections between community members.http://saferoutesconference.org/
