Building Healthy Places Workshops
With funding from the Colorado Health Foundation of $30,000 to the Colorado District Council of ULI (ULI Colorado), ULI Colorado will host two Building Healthy Places (BHP) workshops during 2016. Applications are currently being accepted. These locations will be announced in mid-July.
The workshops will bring together 8-to-10 ULI volunteer experts with community leaders and other stakeholders to envision new designs, developments and infrastructure that will benefit community health.
In a one-day exercise, these workshops will study the selected communities and provide observations, findings, recommendations, and practical first and next steps in retrofitting or designing the built environment to enhance community health and wellness.
The international Urban Land Institute (ULI) is a 501-c-3 nonprofit research and education nonprofit supported by 30,000 members representing the spectrum of land use and real estate development disciplines working in private enterprise and public service. ULI’s mission is to provide leadership in responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide.
In partnership with the Colorado Health Foundation, ULI has become a leader in best practices to create healthy and sustainable places—communities where all residents can enjoy active lifestyles, access to healthy food, clean air and water, green space and natural systems, and a safe community supporting physical and mental health.
