Group Member Thomas Herrmann Presents at the Urban Transitions Conference

Last week, group member Thomas Herrmann presented our recent work on using the Canadian Community Health Survey and Can-ALE to better understand the built environment-physical activity relationship in Canada at the Urban Transitions Conference in Sitges, a coastal community south of Barcelona.  The conference brought together a diverse set of researchers with the intention of fostering discussion about the links between urban planning, health, policy, and environmental science. Talks on the urban component of climate change and climate change prevention  brought to mind the sustainability angle that we have not yet taken in our work to understand the nuances of Can-ALE.
