Up4Health is underpinned by a growing body of evidence which shows a strong relationship between the built environment and people's health.
The UNSW Healthy Built Environments Program (HBEP) Literature Review identifies three key built environment domains that support human health.
The built environment can:
- Support physical activity
- Connect and strengthen communities
- Provide equitable access to healthy food.
The project team review key planning and development policies and proposals and submit comments and recommendations. These submissions aim to increase the adoption of healthy planning principles and thus help create environments supportive of an active, healthy lifestyle.
