Healthy Planning

Sydney Healthy Planning Workshop - 10/11/2008

There is a rapidly growing body of evidence which demonstrates that the built environment is an important variable that influences people's physical activity levels and consequent health. Being active in everyday life not only has substantial positive impacts on people's health, but also brings significant environmental, social and economic benefits to all areas. And yet only half the NSW population does the recommended thirty minutes of physical activity on most days required for health benefit.

Professionals who want to engage with healthy planning and contribute to the creation and maintenance of supportive environments at the local level can act tomorrow, in the medium term and in the long term.
