The COVID-19 pandemic has illuminated a public health crisis that has existed for decades. Rising rates of chronic disease, which can be partially attributed to the design of our built environment, have exacerbated the impacts of infectious disease on many segments of our population. This discussion with Sara, will explore the role of land use professionals in creating healthy and equitable buildings, neighborhoods, and cities. Programs of ULI’s Building Healthy Places Initiative are focused on cultivating leadership for healthy places, partnering with other membership organizations—including the American Society of Landscape Architects—to promote health and equity locally, and providing technical assistance to communities that are striving to create equitable access to housing, parks and open spaces, and transportation options. Truly healthy places will take collaboration between landscape architects, architects, planners, developers, public health professionals, and residents, and this collaboration must be centered on how equitable conditions can be created through built environment interventions.
