In Changing the Landscape: People, Parks, and Power, Prevention Institute and Alessandro Rigolon of the University of Utah propose an approach to addressing park and green space inequities that prioritizes building power among people closest to the problem so that they can drive policy and systems change solutions. The paper includes lessons learned from other public health movements that can benefit the park equity movement as well as examples of promising green space equity policies. It was funded with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF).
Check out this webinar to learn more about the paper and to hear an update on the planning of Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s new national funding initiative for park and green space equity.
