Louisiana Walk & Bike Summit
To establish a broad coalition of statewide partners and advocates across Louisiana that seek to learn from one another and collaborate to move walking and bicycling forward with a shared and actionable policy agenda serving people of all ages and all abilities in Louisiana.
- Create a shared statewide policy agenda to collaboratively move walking and bicycling forward with specific actions to achieve success:
- Strengthen and broaden partnerships across the state;
- Share resources (i.e. education and experiences) via a coordinated network
Who should attend?
Pedestrian and bicycle advocates, transportation planners, community development professionals, public health practitioners, livability and sustainability experts, tactical urbanists, and others from across the state for a day-long conversation that will shape Louisiana’s walking and bicycling advocacy agenda for 2015 and beyond.
The event will feature a panel discussion featuring Billy Fields, Ph.D., discussing findings from a study on national Complete Streets policy implementation by MPOs and Jennifer Ruley, P.E. on Louisiana Citizen’s Guide to Pedestrian, Bicycle and Complete Streets Funding.
This event made possible with support from the Merritt C. Becker, Jr. University of New Orleans Transportation Institute, Bike Easy, and the Texas State University Center for Research, Public Policy, and Training. Special thanks to the Center for Planning Excellence for the use of their space.
This Event is part of Bike Easy’s Advocacy Project.
