Now Available: Open-source curriculum to help plan and deliver a Healthy Built Environment workshop!
The Healthy Built Environment Linkages Toolkit (the Toolkit) links five features of the built environment (housing, neighbourhood design, food, transportation, and natural environments) with health outcomes. The Toolkit workshops animate and activate the Toolkit by getting people together in a shared learning experience, to explore the Toolkit together by applying it to projects, plans and issues that matter to them in their community or region.
The curriculum includes three detailed agendas, workshop planning guides and corresponding presentations designed for different amounts of time and knowledge levels. Participants will explore the links between built environments and health outcomes and apply their new knowledge to projects, plans and issues that matter to them in their community. Anyone is free to download and adapt the materials to their local context.
