Communities around the world are facing pressing health challenges related to the built environment. Join ULI Philadelphia’s Lehigh Valley Council for an important conversation about ULI’s new Building Healthy Places initiative and learn about new resources including:

• A deeper understanding of strategies for building healthy places and communities, and how the demand for these places is evolving.

• Examples of how other communities are encouraging healthy building and the resulting community and economic health benefits.

• New models of effective partnerships between developers, government agencies, and other stakeholders.

• The latest thinking on how to create places where people want to live, work and play – information you can use to better position yourself in the marketplace.

Join keynote speaker Maureen McAvey, Senior Resident Fellow and Bucksbaum Family Chair for Retail, ULI; and panelists Sara Hailstone, Director of Community and Economic Development, City of Allentown; Christopher Kocher, President, Wildlands Conservancy; Darlene Heller, Director of Planning and Zoning, City of Bethlehem; and Mark Smallwood, Executive Director, The Rodale Institute.
