Share Your Story

Your story can inspire others to make a difference in their communities. The Active Living Storybank is a database featuring efforts that are changing the way places are designed and built to promote healthy lifestyles.

Tell us about the work you are doing and we will enter your project in the database. Stories may be about programs, construction projects, advocacy campaigns, educational campaigns, legislative initiatives, funding initiatives, comprehensive plans, or other projects.

All projects in the Storybank must include changes to the built environment as a goal.

Examples of projects include:

  • Safe Routes to School programs building new sidewalks and crosswalks
  • New parks providing places for kids to play outdoors
  • Trails connecting homes with workplaces
  • Initiatives to institute policy changes that promote active living
