Location: Omni Atlanta Hotel, North Tower, M2, Magnolia Room

This mini-workshop will provide attendees working in rural or tribal areas with an in-depth discussion on implementing activity-friendly routes to everyday destinations. The panel will highlight the community context in which they are working and the challenges, opportunities, and potential strategies that may lead to activity-friendly routes to every day destinations.  Session attendees will reflect on their own community context in relation to implementing activity-friendly routes to every day destinations, identify challenges/barriers and approaches to overcome these, describe successes and facilitators of success, and integrate lessons learned from shared learning opportunities into their work. Attendees will work in small groups to explore, problem solve, and refine their ideas.
