Building Healthy Places – Boise
Building Healthy Places:
Raising Awareness of the Relationship between Health and the Built Environment
Our community, like so many others, faces pressing health challenges related to the built environment. Last year ULI Idaho began a discussion with community leaders asking them what they valued in a healthy community. Raising awareness on the connection between health and the built environment is an important first step. Join us as we engage ULI leadership and key community thought leaders in sharing their perspective on the link between health and the built environment and the number of local initiatives underway to promote health and healthy places.
This is the first of several ULI Idaho programs focusing on health and the built environment planned for 2014.
Michael Horst is Senior Vice-President for the ULI Robert C. Larson Leadership Initiative, and a senior staff adviser for ULI’s Building Healthy Places Initiative, Urban Land Institute, Washington, DC. Michael will describe how ULI globally is working to promote development practices that are conducive to active lifestyles, social interaction and prosperity. He will share lessons learned from ULI research reports and Advisory Services Panels and explain how communities that encourage healthy living choices can attract new investment and gain a competitive advantage.
