Seminar: Activating Transportation in Winston-Salem

Wake Forest Innovations is proud to present the first seminar in the newly initiated program Boost!. Join us Tuesday, May 7 2013 from 12 – 1 PM  in the Wake Forest Biotech Place auditorium as Matthew Burczyk, City of Winston-Salem Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator, discusses city initiatives aimed at making our community more walkable and bikeable.

Register here.

Like many American cities, Winston-Salem has been designed and built around the automobile, which has made it increasingly difficult for people to walk and bike safely and comfortably. The City of Winston-Salem, however, understands the value of promoting walking and biking in working towards building livable communities.

Matthew will share some of the challenges and opportunities associated with promoting active transportation in our rapidly changing region.

Highlights include:

  • Information on facilities being built and programs offered to encourage active transportation
  • How can citizens help make Winston-Salem more bikeable and walkable

There is no charge to attend this event and lunch will be provided. You won’t want to miss this engaging seminar. Read Matthew’s full bio and register today to attend!
