ULI Building Healthy Places Series: Unlocking the Value

October 2, 2014 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Around the world, communities face pressing health challenges related to the built environment. For many years, ULI and its members have been active players in discussions and projects that make the link between human health and development; we know that health is a core component of thriving communities.

What is a healthy place? Healthy places offer healthy and affordable housing options. They provide access to healthy foods, the natural environment, and other amenities. Healthy Places are designed thoughtfully, and are built using health-promoting materials. And they address unique community issues with innovative and sustainable solutions.

Through the Urban Land Institute’s (ULI) Building Healthy Places Initiative, ULI is working to promote health across the globe. Join ULI Columbus as we engage key community thought leaders and decision-makers to participate in this local event series, to begin the discussion on the critical connection between health and the built environment.

This is the first of several ULI Columbus Building Healthy Places programs planned for 2014-2015.
