Are you a passionate pedestrian who wants to help advance WalkDenver’s vision of making Denver the most walkable city in the nation? Now’s your chance, with two great ways to get involved! Applications for both opportunities are due by July 22, 2016.

Apply to Join the WalkDenver Board or a Committee

Board and Committee activities directly support WalkDenver’s strategic plan and ongoing work.  Board members commit to providing at least 5 hours of volunteer service per month, including Board and Committee meetings.

For a lower level of commitment, you can apply to participate in the Policy or Program/Finance Committee without joining the full Board.

Denver Deserves Sidewalks!

On March 31, 2016, WalkDenver delivered to Denver City Council a final petition package [PDF], with 2,829 signatures and 34 letters of support for the Denver Deserves Sidewalks campaign, calling upon the City to assume responsibility for building and repairing sidewalks, and to establish a dedicated funding source for this purpose.

Slow City: One Day in Denver was a collaborative project led by our partners at Walk2Connect. On April 26, 2014, 27 people walked 13.5 miles across the city of Denver in search of experiences that fuel the yearning for a slow city. A slow city where people get out of their cars and connect with the delightful and gritty nuances that make Denver home. And, where people travel at a speed where they can connect with their environment and one another.

Our project was part of the larger One Day in Denver city-wide, participatory media event. The resulting media will be showcased in an interactive geo-tagged archive and a TV series on the future of the American city.
