Healthy Places Webinar “Lighter, Quicker, Cheaper – And Healthier”  Thursday, April 23th 10am-11am Pacific
Transforming the built environment to improve health outcomes can take years, if not decades. This webinar will focus on short term, low cost, yet high impact strategies for improving streets, public spaces, and buildings across the country that can lead to longer term change. Kate Rube and her team at Project for Public Spaces with Jennifer Smith from Greater Kennedy Plaza, will present health-promoting ‘Lighter, Quicker, Cheaper’ approaches, including active recreation amenities, street redesigns that prioritize pedestrians, and farmers’ market stands.

After the webinar, participants will be ready to create great public places that attract people and provide many ways to get healthy! This webinar is part of the “Take Action at the Local Level” webinar series that calls upon individuals to build community and institutional support for walkable design.
