Active Design 101: An Introduction to NYC's Active Design Guidelines
When: 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM MONDAY, JULY 23
Where: At The Center
There are still opportunities to learn about Active Design this summer! Released in January 2010, the award-winning NYC Active Design Guidelines offers concrete strategies for a healthier, more sustainable future. Designers, planners, developers, and operations managers can adapt the Guidelines to their own projects to promote physical activity and help counteract the most pressing health epidemics of our time – obesity and chronic diseases such as diabetes.
Active Design 101 is a 1-hour presentation and discussion session that will: explore the relationship between health and the built environment; provide an overview of the Guidelines and its list of strategies; examine synergies between Active Design, environmental sustainability, and universal design; and highlight current NYC policy initiatives. More information, including a free electronic copy of the Active Design Guidelines, can be found at www.nyc.gov/adg. Active Design 101 training sessions are currently offered free of charge through generous support from the Centers for Disease Control Community Transformation Grant.
Speakers: Ernest Hutton, FAICP, Assoc. AIA, and Annie Kurtin, Training Coordinator, Active Design Program, City of New York
