Call for Proposals: Georgia Walks Summit

The 2017 Georgia Walks Summit is a statewide gathering of transportation and public health professionals, community advocates and elected officials committed to making our streets and communities great places to walk.

Participants will share best practices, help make pedestrian safety a top priority and build momentum for walkable communities. Concurrent tracks will make the Georgia Walks Summit relevant to diverse audiences and to towns and cities of all sizes.

The Georgia Walks Summit will be in Augusta on May 4 – 5.
