APBP headed to St. Louis, Missouri, for the 2015 Professional Development Seminar (PDS). Through the theme of Flexibility, the seminar explored the culture of Connectivity, Collaboration and Community that made St. Louis unique. PDS is known for in-depth, three-hour sessions that leverage speakers’ expertise and participants’ enthusiasm to teach new skills and generate fresh insights. This year, sessions were organized into four tracks:

 

  • Innovation and Experimentation
  • Integration and Shared Use
  • Getting to Yes
  • Tools to Advance Health in Transportation Policy

View the 2015 Program

Classroom sessions, mobile tours, poster sessions and plenaries delivered training, tools and insight into building stronger communities with active transportation networks. The conference was packed with state-of-the-practice information for planners, engineers, landscape architects, public health professionals, advocates, elected officials, and others working to advance active transportation and sustainable, livable communities. In St. Louis, we discovered innovative strategies and flexible responses for transforming and connecting communities through active transportation.

We are currently planning the 2017 and 2019 PDS events – stay tuned!
