The first webinar & discussion was on Nov. 27, 2018! One of the forum co-moderators, Charito Gailling, will provide an overview of the BCCDC Healthy Built Environment Linkages Toolkit and how it relates to our visions of the forum.
Title: The Healthy Built Environment Linkages Toolkit (v2): Reviewing the conceptual framework and tools
Partnering with local governments is a powerful public health strategy to encourage healthy living and prevent chronic disease. To support the integration of health priorities within community planning and design, BCCDC has released an update to the “Healthy Built Environment Linkages Toolkit: making the links between design, planning and health” (Version 2.0, 2018). Since its original release in 2014, the HBE Linkages Toolkit has been rapidly adopted by health professionals and others who collaborate with local governments for credible health research and key messages.
This presentation will review the conceptual framework provided within the HBE Linkages Toolkit, which considers health evidence related to neighbourhood design, transportation systems, food systems, natural environments and housing. The full report and 2-page summary can be found on the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) website.
The presentation portion will be approximately 30 minutes long, following by Q&A and discussion questions. Participants will be able to speak over the phone or chat via the chat box. Please review the discussion questions below prior to the webinar. This is your chance to help shape how we support your work!
