Green Neighborhood Assets: Streets, Houses, Schools, Parks, Food.
Families with children not wanting to move to low-density suburbs need neighborhoods and an urban public realm designed to support culturally diverse, socially stimulating, healthy lifestyles.
Growing IN Place addresses planning and design policies that support these needs for children and other family members. Young people need networks of attractive, walkable/bikable routes connecting homes to schools, parks, community gardens, and cultural institutions – where they can engage with nature.
Growing IN Place is framed for an audience in North Carolina and adjacent states of public/private sector practitioners, including landscape architects, architects, and planners (receiving CEUs); parks and recreation professionals; non formal educators, and elected officials.
Growing IN Place offers an annual focus on urban community/neighborhood design for health, sustainability, and wellbeing of children and families in the 21st century.
