Feb 22 - 25, 2015    Active Living Research Annual Conference  - The theme of the 2015 conference, “The Science of Policy Implementation”, explores the process of taking scientific findings from the research field of active living to inform policies, then ensuring the policies are put into practice to increase population-level physical activity. Policies to promote active living in communities and schools are becoming common, but these policies are often not implemented as intended or not implemented at all. Every policy, planning, or programmatic intervention needs to go through a process of implementation. In part because of implementation, a policy drawn in Capitol Hill, or a State Capitol, may end up looking very different when it reaches a local main street. For example, engineers, government officials, private businesses, claimant groups, and citizens at large all have different perspectives about why a state policy on complete streets should be applied very differently across municipalities and regions. Despite differences in the policy process across countries, there is also much to learn from international experiences.   Event  San Diego, CA 
Mar 10 - 12, 2015    National Bike Summit 2015  - The National Bike Summit is the premier bike advocacy event of the year, uniting the voices of bicyclists on Capitol Hill.
