WalkABle Alberta

WalkABle Alberta works with provincial and local walkability champions and community stakeholders to build local strategies that help create walkable communities. Some of the key activities can include:

  • walkability presentations
  • professional workshops
  • community walkabouts
  • community meetings
  • feedback sessions

Following the WalkAble Alberta process specific to the needs of each community, a summary of work done was provided to each community:

WalkABle Alberta has also produced resources to support communities to promote walkability including an infographic on the economic benefits of walkability and a guiding document, empowering communities to improve walkability; a trail guide for download.

In January 2018 WalkABle Alberta re-connected with each community that participated in WalkABle Alberta through telephone interviews to learn about the progress made since the community visit. Comments and recommendations collected from the interviews were compiled into broader themes and can be viewed in A Summary of Community Interviews.

In February 2018 WalkABle Alberta provided an academic poster presentation at the Active Living Research Conference in Banff Alberta. You can view The WalkABle Alberta program: Informed change to community walkability in Alberta.
