Jeff Olson, a partner with Alta Planning + Design, has just written a new book called The Third Mode: Towards a Green Society. This webinar will be the national launch event for The Third Mode, and is hosted by American trails.
The webinar will connect to the book’s theme with simultaneous presentations by three of America’s leaders in active mobility joining in from three different places:
- Jeff Olson will be at the American Metropolitan Planning Organization conference in Saratoga Springs, NY;
- Andy Clarke, President of the League of American Bicyclists will be at the ProWalk/ProBike Conference in Long Beach, CA, and
- Bob Searns, Chairman of the Board of American Trails and Owner of The Greenway Team will moderate from Denver, CO.
Communities around the globe are looking for better solutions that engage more people in traveling by bike, on foot, and other human powered modes for both transportation and recreation. In the face of an epidemic of physical inactivity, climate change, and rising energy costs, this know-how is becoming increasingly important for public health and quality of life. These improvements are increasingly recognized as essential for communities to be competitive as places to live and to attract new businesses.
This session will look at the latest issues and policies in the planning and design of urban mobility networks and how these can best integrate with greenway and trail networks to create seamless metro-wide systems. The webinar will provide participants with a chance to see how the trails and active transportation movement can be seen as part of larger cultural trends. We will also look at the current funding environment in the face of the new MAP-21 federal legislation and how to best navigate change. A free e-book copy of the The Third Mode will be provided to the first 100 people who register for the webinar. Proceeds from this webinar and national book launch event will benefit American Trails.
