To advance building healthy cities we need to consider various inputs and outputs. Applying evidenced based research in the connection between built environment and human health is critical to building inclusive and resilient communities. In this presentation Joyce will share a planning tool for decision making and the outcome of a cross collaborative approach to design and construction of the City of Calgary Main Street program and Eau Claire Improvement program.
Following on Dr. Hancock's call to action, if Lethbridge is to “achieve equitable health and social outcomes now and for future generations, without destroying the health of our planet”, it must address challenges. Building on the work of the Healthy Cities initiative, a variety of community-based health promotion projects throughout the world, including here in Alberta, have planted seeds for the type of broad-based, intersectoral collaborative action and healthy public policy change that creates supportive social and physical environments so essential to the health of a population. One of the biggest challenges is sustained commitment and effort to achieve an adequate "preventive dose". This presentation will share health promotion principles and lessons learned from those communities to help us move beyond imagination to action. What has worked well, in what contexts, and how? What will it take for Lethbridge's imagined future to come to fruition? What is your role in change?
The concept of healthy communities has been around for centuries, but was given its modern form with the advent of WHO’s Healthy Cities initiative in 1986. From the outset it was clear that the health of the city's people requires healthy physical and social environments; community engagement and strong intersectoral partnerships; and public and private sector policies that create such conditions. Only then can people be expected to make healthy choices and be supported in leading healthy lives.
