Neighborhood Placemaking is the Remedy to “Unnatural Causes” Affecting Health Revisited
Markese Bryant , Remix: The Soul of Innovation (SM)
The session will continue to bridge silos in conversations taking place around “building healthy communities,” “gentrification,” and “opportunity in the innovation economy.” Moving it from, “creating access to healthier lifestyle options, affordable housing, and looking for the next Silicon Valley, to, creating platforms for place-based innovation to help communities meet their own needs and drive their own development. The California Endowment Building Healthy Communities Initiative work in this area has matured tremendously. This year, each panelist will present the progress of their work and continue the conversation we started at SOCAP 2017.
