An Online Discussion--Improve the Built Environment in Your Community, HC Link

February 13, 2017

How our community is built has a great effect on our health. Street design, parks and green spaces, access to food and shops, recreation and transportation options all affect our health through nutrition, physical activity, safety, mental health, and connectedness to the community.

Paul Young, an HC Link consultant who specializes in planning and designing public spaces as well as developing strategies for active transportation, will join our online discussion to answer your questions, provide advice and offer ideas to help you improve the built environment in your community!

Some of the questions you may have are:

  • What are the links between health and the design of the built environment?
  • How can you support at-risk populations/communities and bring an equity lens to the design of the built environment?
  • What strategies are other communities using to improve active transportation options in their community and what might be viable in yours?
  • How can you gain public or political support for investments in the built environment?

Ask questions ahead of time to ensure priority, by emailing Kyley at or ask questions live during the discussion.

We will also share helpful resources that will support your work in the built environment.

There is no need to register! Simply join in the conversation at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, February 13 at
