“Green Riders Tour”
Imagine a world where families can walk or bike an urban trail to a safe, well-maintained public park, Where we can play and exercise on outdoor fitness equipment. Where our elders can easily travel to the city center where they can access many of the necessary amenities. Cities’ planning, zoning, and infrastructure investment can not only have a positive effect on health but can also foster community and keep some of our most vulnerable populations engaged, active and healthy from ages 8 to 80. How will you help make this a reality?
Access to healthy food is an important tool in obesity prevention. By providing citizens with healthy, affordable & easily accessible alternatives to foods with high caloric content and little nutritional value communities can lead by example in the fight against obesity. Cities have powerful planning, economic development, and public relations tools for attracting and supporting healthy food retailers, farmer’s markets and community gardens. Are you ready to take action?
