Share Walkability Patterns in Metro Vancouver - Webinar

Event Details

We will present a unique and powerful dataset demonstrating variations in built environment features that support walking across the Lower Mainland.  We will highlight how the 2005 and 2011 Walkability Surface was developed and present examples of its application.  Questions like the following will be explored:  Where are the most walkable neighbourhoods and where is there room for improvement? What are implications for vulnerable populations?  How is walkability related to chronic disease prevention and sustainable environments?

  • Learn about walkability patterns in Metro Vancouver.
  • Hear about why this is an important issue for the province and local governments.
  • Explore how the information can be applied in planning processes.


Those who might be interested in this webinar: individuals involved in influencing and making planning and community design decisions including public health and environmental health sector policy makers, professionals, students & researchers, architects, planners, design professionals, engineers, real estate developers, and local government decision makers.
