Healthy Communities, Workplaces, & Lifestyles

The health and well-being of communities is dependent on a multitude of factors. Environmental sustainability touches many of them: community food systems, green space & urban tree canopy, and access to clean, drinkable water among them. Sometimes oversimplified to an issue of choice, the health status and lifestyle choices of community members are often a byproduct of the systems – political, economic, social – in which they exist. Many JHU affiliates study and implement methods to increase agency and accessibility to resources within communities across impact areas.
