In the spring of 2015, with support from the Wellesley Institute, Toronto Public Health and the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, the Healthier Cities & Communities Hub awarded nine seed grants to research teams comprised of community, public sector and university collaborators. The seed grant solutions-focused projects address a range of social determinants of health to improve health in Toronto and beyond, focusing on: creating resilient cities, the built environment and health and place-based interventions. TCAT’s “Creating a Town Centre in a Tower Neighbourhood” project was chosen as one of these seed grants. In this action-research project we worked with community members in Flemingdon Park to create a prototype of a community driven design intervention that would improve walkability and animate public space. Car Martin and Nancy Smith Lea will present the results of the project at this Healthier Cities and Communities Hub Showcase event.
