The Walkable and Liveable Communities Institute Comes to Worcester
The Walkable and Liveable Communities Institute (WALC) Institute is an educational, non-profit organization working to create healthy, connected communities that support active living and that advance opportunities for all people through walkable streets, livable cities and better built environments. The Institute’s mission is to inspire, teach, connect and support communities in their efforts to improve health and well-being through better built environments.
Join Dan Burden, Co-Founder of the institute, on Wedensday, April 23 at 5:00pm, as he and his colleagues from WALC tour the Main South neighborhood with Mayor Petty and Councilor Rivera. Dan has spent more than 35 years helping the world get “back on its feet” and his efforts have not only earned him the first-ever lifetime-achievement awards issued by the New Partners for Smart Growth and the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals, but in 2001, Dan was named by TIME magazine as “one of the six most important civic innovators in the world.”
