2019 NC BikeWalk Summit

Winston-Salem, N.C.

Engineering Healthy Communities

Presented by Mike Sewell, Louisville Office Lead and Active Transportation Service Line Leader

Mike’s keynote is a deep dive into our role as engineers and planners of our transportation systems. Health takes on many forms: The most obvious being physical fitness, but there are also elements to social health, mental well-being as well as financial health that our transportation networks are influencing. During his presentation, Mike will help explain what has happened to our urban centers over the past century, why we are in the current state of single occupancy car-centric mayhem, and then point to future transformational things occurring in our field that we should be excited for as multimodal enthusiasts and practitioners.
