The AARP PA panel, “The Impact of Housing and Green Spaces on Heath” will examine the link between poorly developed and maintained housing and green spaces on health including chronic diseases, mental health, increased emergency room visits and hospitalizations. The quality and proximity of green space in urban, dense communities are important and significant to increase people’s connectivity, health, and wellbeing and to decrease social isolation.
Cities across the country are incorporating equitable development approaches to design and build healthy, green, and inclusive neighborhoods to create livable communities.
The purpose of this session is to share and discuss strategies on how to create livable communities that are healthy, accessible, affordable, and inclusive, and to prevent displacement.
