Intersections: Health and the Built Environment explores global health trends and makes the link between those trends and what has been happening to our built environment. It looks at the relationship between how healthy we are and the way our buildings and communities function.
The report uses data and project examples drawn from around the world to make the case that we can build our way to better health, by changing our approach to cities, communities, and places.
Health challenges are daunting. But this publication shows how change can happen; one community, and one project, at a time.
Intersections: Health and the Built Environment includes chapters on:
- Global health trends
- Better health through community design
- Active transportation
- Healthy buildings
- Access to healthy food
