January 31, 2017 at 1pm - 5pm

As part of our Walkable Communities programme for 2016, Living Streets
Scotland is pleased to offer an opportunity for people from community
groups, local authorities, and partners from public health or other sectors
to attend one of our free half-day workshops this Winter in Edinburgh.

The workshops are an opportunity to learn about and plan effective
interventions that enable and encourage people to walk more often as part of
their everyday journeys and will focus on:

- Making the case for walking - Increasing our understanding of the social,
economic and health benefits of walking
- Raising awareness of the most common barriers to walking faced by people
using our local streets
- Understanding what a Community Street Audit is and how to organise one in
your neighbourhood
- Consider what action you could take locally in the future to encourage a
'walkable' community

Workshops will include a short walkabout as a 'taster' Community Street
Audit.

The event will be held at McDonald Road Library, 2 McDonald Road, Edinburgh,
between 13:00 and 17:00 on Tuesday 31 January 2017.

Tea/coffee and lunch will be provided. Please let us know in advance if you
have any specific dietary requirements.
