Blue Zones Presents:
May 15-17, 2019
Fall tour details coming soon
Join us this spring as we explore on foot, bike, and public transit how transportation and land use decisions directly impact the well-being of people and the environment in Seattle and surrounding communities. We will hear firsthand from local leaders on the urban and suburban strategies needed to move policy into practice. The tour will focus on the region’s shift to putting people first, dumping the auto-oriented sprawl model and focusing on directing growth inward, expanding public transit and protecting green space to shape a healthier environment for all.
BUILT ENVIRONMENT & WALKABILITY EXPERTS: Walkability pioneer Dan Burden, Director of Innovation & Inspiration at Blue Zones and Samantha Thomas, Built Environmentalist and architect of city-making tours, will be your guides as you learn about what makes cities and towns work for people.
Includes tour, ground transportation, one welcome happy hour, one group dinner, and light snacks. More details to come. The fee does not cover airfare or lodging. A processing fee will be applied to online purchases. Checks can be made out to Blue Zones, LLC, and mailed to Blue Zones, 323 Washington Ave N, 2nd Floor, Minneapolis, MN, 55401.

We are excited to invite our participants to join us for an optional extension on Saturday, May 18th that will include an all-day tour to Victoria, B.C., Canada. The added registration price will be $450 (online payments include a processing fee), which includes the high-speed ferry to Victoria, a box lunch, ground transportation, and bike rentals. We will depart Seattle at 7:30 AM and return at 9:45 PM. When you register with us, please include in the comment box if you will be adding this additional date to your tour.
