FitCity PHL 2
FitCity2 PHL is a full-day symposium designed to explore design strategies in our workplaces, neighborhoods, and cities that improve health by promoting physical activity and healthy eating. At this ground-breaking event, architects, developers, designers, landscape architects, planners, City officials, and public health professionals will connect to learn from one another and from panels of experts about how public officials are integrating health into policy and planning, hear about current active design projects around Philadelphia, learn what makes an initiative attractive to funders, and walk through a case study of a successful collaboration between the community and planners.
FitCity is a collaboration between, Health Promotion Council & Public Health Management Corporation, Ballinger, Community Design Collaborative, AIA Philadelphia, Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, Philadelphia Planning Commission, Philadelphia Dept of Public Health, Center for Architecture and Design, Drexel University, American Diabetes Association, and Philadelphia Parks and Recreation.
