Event description

Description

he built environment — the human-made physical spaces where we live, work, and recreate on a daily basis — profoundly shapes the human experience and includes housing, green spaces, transportation systems, educational institutions, healthy food access, and public health. Current and past laws, policies, and land-use planning have influenced the built environment and its relationship to housing, socioeconomic opportunities, and quality of life. How can we reimagine equitable access to quality education, healthy environments, and improved transportation opportunities?

Co-Hosts HousingWorks Austin and the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas are pleased to announce our next educational Summit that will be yet another opportunity for dialogue, discussion, and action. Housing + Access: Rethinking The Built Environment will bring together audiences interested in better understanding the challenges, opportunities, and future solutions around housing and the built environment. This one-day summit will take place on Friday, March 6, 2020 at the Austin Hyatt Regency Hotel, Austin, TX.

10:15am - General Session Conversation - Building Equitable Educational Opportunities Historically, segregation of neighborhoods and education has limited equitable access to opportunities and economic mobility. Today, the growing housing affordability crisis in the United States is affecting school closures and disrupting the quality of education. This panel will address unique policies and place-based initiatives that improve housing and educational opportunities, explore community programs that seek to close the academic achievement gap, and discuss housing and education partnerships that build more equitable outcomes.

1:40 PM - General Session Conversation - Moving towards healthy communities Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Health is shaped by a variety of factors, including the built environment, access to job opportunities, education, and more.* From the zoning of harmful land uses to the racial divides of congested highways and access to basic needs, the physical design of communities impacts health conditions and life expectancy. This panel will focus on solutions to move towards healthy communities, including collaborative community investment, policies to improve the social determinants of health, and innovative strategies that reshape the way we connect health to the built environment.

● Moderator: Michael Hole M.D., MBA Assistant Professor, Department of Pediatrics & Courtesy Assistant Professor, Department of Population Health, Dell Medical School
