Active Living by Rich Killingsworth, MPH, Director, Active Living by Design This presentation was given at Health Canada in February 2004. The presentation provides a general overview of the relationships between the built environment, transportation, and physical activity and will outline the Active Living movement in the United States. Specific attention will be directed toward the Active Living by Design national program and the other physical activity efforts. Understanding how these factors affect decisions to be active will provide more information to effectively promote the emerging Active Living movement and how city planners, urban designers, and transportation engineers can cultivate places to accommodate healthy behaviors such as walking and bicycling.
