Come learn about how the built environment factors in our buildings, streets and neighbourhoods can influence key risk and protective factors for chronic diseases and mental health and the strategies for implementing policy and practice interventions for improving the built environment for health and wellbeing.

Healthy community initiatives have been multiplying in forward-thinking communities all over the world. An international expert in the field, Dr. Karen Lee will guide learners on an exploration of how multi-sector partners and professionals working in health, planning, transportation, housing, economic development, and recreation, among others, are instrumental in creating health and wellbeing.

Other co-beneficial outcomes for the environment, accessibility and local economy for our communities through such initiatives will also be discussed.
