This presentation is part of the We Are Stronger Together: Creative Coalitions to Promote Walking and Walkability session.
Denver’s Community Active Living Coalition (CALC) is a unique collaboration between public sector agencies, nonprofit advocacy groups, and community members, focusing on engaging and educating the community in promoting Health in All Policies through active living. During the presentation, we will tell the story of our Coalition and give real-life examples of various types of activities to engage communities in active living work. Some examples of our action-oriented work include: coalition building, city-wide community-driven data collection, interactive community walking tours around health and the built environment, small-scale neighborhood beautification and walkability projects, and multi-modal travel plan policies at elementary schools.
