Congratulations to Jon Dugan, RideWise’s Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Manager, for receiving a Fellowship to participate in America Walks’ Walking College!
The Walking College is a remote-learning program that imparts fellows with the knowledge and skills they need to become leaders in creating stronger, more equitable, sustainable, and liveable communities. Over six months, fellows complete a series of modules addressing the basics of walkable design, how to navigate the public policy process, effectively engage decision makers, and how to foster a local advocacy movement.
By the end of the program, Jon will have completed a blueprint for a series of short and long term strategies to tackle an identified problem in the community. As part of the Walking College, Jon plans to work on a project that creates safer and healthier ways for people to navigate to parks and schools.
