Maryland Department of Planning to Host 3rd Annual Walktober “Walkinars”

Planning in Progress

The Walktober Walkinar series, sponsored by the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) and 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.

All webinars are free of charge and will take place every Thursday in October from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. Eastern. See the specific details below.

The Walkinars also 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.
