Co-Creating and Keeping Inclusive Healthy Places: A Workshop

When: February 6, 2020 (8:30 AM Eastern)

Topics Children and Families, Education, Public Health
Activity: Roundtable on Population Health Improvement
Board: Board on Population Health and Public Health Practice

On February 6, 2020, the Roundtable on Population Health Improvement will host a workshop in New York City designed to highlight the economics of inclusive placemaking and explore its value to improving health, equity, and well-being. Placemaking is the work of creating livable, vibrant, or quality places, especially public places, draws on various traditions of community development, arts and culture, regional planning, and civic engagement, combining different disciplinary perspectives into a creative way of shaping public spaces, land use, commerce, transportation, housing, and social fabric. With attention to avoiding the unintended negative consequences of placemaking (such as gentrification and displacement, racial and socioeconomic exclusion, and lack of resident leadership), the workshop will (1) examine the economics of this work, (2) describe how inclusive placemakers gather resources to do their work, and (3) explore the social and economic value they are able to generate when places are designed with health, equity, and well-being in mind. 
Location: Hunter College Faculty Dining Room; 8th Floor of Hunter Main Campus on 68th Street, New York City.

The workshop is free and open to the public. It will be webcast live ON THIS PAGE.
