Health Equity and the Built Environment: Engaging New Allies in Planning a Healthy City

This three-session webinar series is focused on the concept that "place matters"—that the physical environment can protect against or exacerbate health inequities. The series will center on the intersection of design, planning, community development, and public health, as well as the consequences of different urban design approaches on health equity. It will help people "see" their surroundings and their relationship to health with new eyes, as well as provide resources and tools for increased participation of community leaders and “non-designer” professionals in the urban design process. The series’ intended results include creating a cadre of professionals in relevant sectors who gain insight into how the built environment intersects with issues of safety, access to healthy lifestyles, and a community’s overall physical, mental and emotional health. The webinars will also provide participants with sample resources and steps to become engaged or engage others in the urban design process.
 
Who should attend: Community leaders and professionals in the fields of public health, healthcare, government, urban planning, design, transportation, education, and others who are seeking (1) a more comprehensive understanding of the urban planning–health equity relationship to provide input and ideas in the urban design process; and (2) essential skills in the theory and practice of community engagement.
 
Cost: 
Free
