Where people are born, live, learn, work, play and age shape our health outcomes.
A growing body of evidence shows that the way communities are developed, designed and built can help people to live healthier lives. Health is now recognised as a core component of good design and a key feature of liveable communities and sustainable development.
Neighbourhoods that support physical activity, connection with nature, healthy food choices and social connection can contribute to lifelong health and wellbeing. To achieve this, we partner with those who can influence the planning and design of environments and settings.
