The Confluence of People and the Built Environment


What does it mean to live in a healthy place?

A healthy community is the intersection of an engaged citizenry, a diverse population base, an eclectic housing stock, cultural and sporting amenities, and walkable neighborhoods with public transit options. These places offer healthy and affordable housing options, and a variety of safe, comfortable, and convenient transportation choices. Healthy places support access to healthy foods, the natural environment, and other amenities that allow people to reach their full potential. Overall, healthy places are designed, built, and programmed to support the physical, mental, and social well-being of the people who live, work, learn, and visit there.

Join us as we discuss the components of a healthy community, what it takes to create one, and how to empower citizens' voices as we work to build healthy communities for the St. Louis region.
