Walking the Walk: Active Design and WELL Standards for the Built Environment

This presentation is part of the “From the Ground Up: How the Built Environment Influences Community Health” session.

Our presentation will introduce the WELL Building Standard (WELL) and the novel built environment rating system being developed for communities. It will also discuss the ways in which the built environment can be designed and operated to promote physical activity across the lifespan at the community scale as well as barriers to implementing interventions at this scale.
