Webinar: Rural Physical Activity – An Active Roadmap: Best Practices in Rural Mobility
November 1 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
According to the US Census, about 60 million people, or one in five individuals, live in rural America representing 97% of America’s land mass and contributing to 10% of the country’s gross domestic product. The perception of what a rural area is varies extensively, but for many, what comes to mind is a landscape consisting of farms, rolling foothills, and shuttered factories, inhabited by predominantly white communities.
The truth is that rural areas are as diverse as they are vast in terms of landscape, communities, and people with almost 22% of the rural population identifying as non-white. The key point is that there is no one all-encompassing definition of rural.
On this webinar, Smart Growth America will present their new report: An Active Roadmap: Best Practices in Rural Mobility. The report explores the different ways that rural communities can adapt to thrive in a changing America, with a primary focus on active and multimodal modes of transportation as a tool.
