Alia Scanlon is the Global Project Director for Jane’s Walk and spends her time figuring out how to get us to engage with our communities in new and interesting ways. She is a firm believer in empowering communities to share their stories and learning from our neighbors. While walking together is one way of doing so, she really thinks that we just need to engage with one another more. It’s fascinating to hear how they have sought to bring communities together and disseminated what they have learned.
