Details: Before you begin crafting your discussion response for this week, be sure to read the required materials and watch Designing Healthy Communities, Searching for Shangri-La. (Links to an external site.) This video is designed to complement the readings to give you a broad understanding of the topics covered in class.
For this final week, take your community action plan and expand your Cure and Prevention plans to support the wider community—e.g., if you are looking at a neighborhood, broaden your scope to the city or region in which you live or consider your permanent residency; if looking at a city, expand to the county, for example.
Provide some ideas on how the successes might be maintained and how the problems might be solved. For now, think in terms of a 20-30-year time period. Remember that healthy-community plans should include ideas on how to protect the city from uncontrolled growth and unhealthy construction and will always favor community building
