Title:  Strategies for Active Communities:  Is Wayfinding A Missing Link

Community wayfinding is the process whereby people use environmental information to locate and find their way within both familiar and unfamiliar settings. Whether walking, cycling, driving, or using public transit, people depend on aids and cues in the environment to guide them to their destinations and return them to points of origin. To date, community wayfinding has received little attention in public health, despite its relevance to public health concerns such as neighborhood walkability, community engagement, pedestrian and motor vehicle safety, air quality, transportation, and social equity.  Participants are encouraged to review Pathways to Better Community Wayfinding (available at www.prc-han.org) prior to the webinar.
