Upcoming Reports

Intersections: Health and the Built Environment. This report explores global health trends and makes the link between those trends and what has been happening to our built environment. It looks at the relationship between how healthy we are and the way our buildings and communities function. And it shows how change can happen– one project, and one community, at a time.




Ten Principles for Building Healthy Places. This report, which distills lessons learned from the three Colorado Advisory Services panels ULI conducted this spring, as well as insights from a summer workshop attended by experts from a variety of fields, sets out ten important principles for building healthy communities.




Both reports will be released November 6 at the 2013 ULI Fall Meeting.
