Part 1 of the Leadership for Healthy Communities Action Strategies Toolkit, which focuses on encouraging active living, is now available in the American Planning Association's Essential Packet - Planning, Public Health, and Physical Activity. The section titled "Active Living and the Built Environment" is included in Part 3 of APA's three-part packet.
This comprehensive packet by the APA will help urban planners and policy-makers understand how to incorporate a public health perspective into their planning efforts, and it provides research that supports why this should be done. It also includes publications from the International City/County Management Association, Active Living Research and PolicyLink, and provides information on conducting health impact assessments.
The packet is available for purchase at the link below, which also includes a free summary PDF.
