Event description

Description

Can the Built Environment Build Community?

Health starts where you live, learn, work and play. The built environment is everything we have made to live our lives including homes, places of business, public spaces, and parks and recreational areas-or lack therof. A healthy community depends on human, institutional, organizational and environmental resources available within the community. The physical design of a community- the built environment- affects health every time a person steps out of the front door and into their neighborhood. Community happens when people connect with each other. The built environment can encourage interaction or hinder it.

Establishing the design of a healthy community is a complex issue and not one that can be solved by any one organization. Everyone has a role in building a helathy community. Local actions support quality of life as well as create a stronger, healthier communities. Join the conversation and get involved!
