Pro Walk/Pro Bike/Pro Place Conference - Project for Public Spaces
SEPTEMBER 8, 2014 - 8:00 AM to SEPTEMBER 11, 2014 - 5:00 PM ET
Founded on the belief that walking and cycling create healthier people and more cohesive neighborhoods, the Pro Walk / Pro Bike / Pro Place conference will soon take place in Pittsburgh, PA. Now in its eighteenth year, the event is geared toward planners, transportation engineers, advocates for public health, government representatives, community leaders and other walking and bicycling activists who want to learn more about trends, research and best practices. Breakout sessions, panel discussions and poster sessions will be offered in four main content areas – Change, Connect, Prosper and Sustain – plus over 100 presentations and mobile workshops. Participants will learn the stages that communities must go through in order to become a place where people can walk and bike safely and with ease.
