RETHINK COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT: MOVING FROM “CHECKBOX” OUTREACH TO INNOVATIVE RESIDENT PARTICIPATION
Please join the Chronic Disease and Health Equity Unit of the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency Division of Public Health and the San Diego American Planning Association for this innovative training on community engagement.
This training is for planners, engineers, and community activists. Learn techniques YOU can use to design healthy cities.
Through this hands-on workshop, James Rojas will present hands-on methods for engaging the community outside of the typical community meeting. Using his Place IT! method, James will show how storytelling, objects, art-production and play can help underserved community. The innovative non-technical, community outreach tool uses the memory, emotion, senses and the body to interstate urban planning.
A presentation on best-practices will be presented by the City of Richmond illustrating a case study of how public outreach and sustained engagement can lead to results and produce healthy planning outcomes. Learn about how the City of Richmond is implementing Health in All Policies and integrated health into planning projects.
