Fall is looking bright and with it comes new opportunities to collaborate with others and make a difference in our communities.
Earlier this year I had the privilege of getting involved with the Regional Outcomes Monitoring Group (ROM), specifically the Capital Regional District (CRD) and Island Health to help plan an upcoming event in Victoria, BC. Planning events is no small task and it’s been my experience that it takes a champion or two to pull it off successfully. Amanda Ng, the CRD Healthy Communities Planner and Jade Yehia, the Regional Built Environment Consultant for Island Health have been working tirelessly to bring this workshop to fruition on September 19th at UVIC.
How we plan and design our communities has a direct influence on our health and perceptions of safety. This FREE 1-day interactive workshop (qualifies for 5.0 PIBC CPD Learning Units) will help you see the relationships between planning, design, and public health illustrated through examples of transportation, climate change, community safety, and housing.
I’m pleased to be presenting on Community Safety – Past, Present and Future. I’ll be sharing some of my experience over the past 30 years, particularly as it relates to Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) and the idea of a Full Spectrum approach to Community Safety and Development. It’s imperative that we all understand how local policy, planning and local government leadership can impact community health and well-being.
