Leveraging the power of ULI’s global networks to shape projects and places in ways that improve the health of people and communities.
ULI has launched its Building Healthy Places Initiative . This two-year initiative will yield multiple publications, special sessions at the Fall and Spring meetings, District Council programming and its own conference in February 2014.
The Building Healthy Places Initiative engages in a multifaceted program of work – including research and publications, convenings and technical assistance – designed to leverage the power of ULI’s global networks to shape projects and places in ways that improve the health of people and communities.
Through the two-year Building Healthy Places Initiative, which launched in July 2013, ULI is working to promote health in projects and places across the globe.
