Planning with People First: A Built Environment & Health Equity Workshop

Better partnerships start with the people and stories at the table. “Planning with People First” focuses on challenging traditional models of engagement with community partners. By prioritizing people and their lived experience, we can lay a foundation for effective, creative, and powerful community-led projects and policies. The workshop will bring together local leaders to discuss dynamic community participation strategies to co-create projects and policies that improve health and well-being for all.
