On October 1-3, hundreds of pedestrian advocates from across the country will convene in Washington, D.C. for the 2013 Walking Summit. The conference agenda will feature engaging capacity building sessions, a dance walk, a dance party, and plenty of opportunities to learn while walking. Two of the D.C. Pedestrian Advisory Council's government agency representatives will lead walking tours: on October 1, DDOT's George Branyan will lead a tour focusing on pedestrian infrastructure improvements in and around D.C.'s Petworth neighborhood, and on October 2, the Office of Planning's Chris Shaheen will lead a tour that will feature D.C.'s park system and how it transformed Washington from "gritty to garden city."
Early bird registration, which is only $150, has been extended until Monday, August 19. After that, the registration fee will go up to $225. Don't wait, register for the 2013 Walking Summit today!
