# Walkinar #4: Maryland Community Walk Initiatives “Walking the Walk of Maryland’s Pedestrian Agenda”**

Thursday, October 29th| 9:30 a.m. EST**

This fourth and final Walktober webinar includes welcome remarks from MDOT Secretary Greg Slater and the session will share information about the many local walk initiatives in Maryland, how they function and how other communities can learn from their successes. Cara Rozaieski, Tracey Greene Gordy, Sandra Brecher, and Chris Eatough will also share what local communities are doing to inspire new thinking and action and get more people walking in Maryland.ADDITIONAL DETAILS

Throughout October, the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT), in coordination with several state agencies and other partners, will sponsor a series of 90-minute webinars, or Walkinars, to highlight how we can collectively rally around walking, an activity that is both central to the state’s Active Transportation efforts and a critical component promoting public well-being.

The Walktober Walkinar series, hosted by the Maryland Department of Planning, will help planners, local officials, pedestrian advocates, and the public at large learn how to advocate for safe walking infrastructure. Panelists will identify key resources to build, strengthen, and sustain local partnerships and share new tools and technologies being used across the country to identify and plan for pedestrian-accessible routes for all ages and abilities.

These walkinars provide American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) with 1.5 Certification Maintenance (CM) credits to maintain their certification. Please note, to receive AICP credit you must attend the live broadcast.
