Fireside Chat Webinar: Healthy Built Environment Linkages

Date(s) - April 30, 2014 - May 1, 2014
10:00 am - 10:45 am


  • Community planners and designers, public health professionals, and local government representatives share a responsibility to promote active living approaches and to shape healthier built environments. 
  • The Healthy Built Environment Linkages Toolkit is the first evidence-based and expert-informed resource that links planning principles to health outcomes and identifies the behavioural impacts (e.g., walking and transit use) and environmental impacts (e.g., noise and traffic safety) that contribute to those health outcomes. 
  • This presentation will provide an overview of the Linkages toolkit. Discussions will focus on linking community design, planning, and health, and on various applications for the resource.
