April 18 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

A growing body of research is showing how placemaking initiatives—from community gardens to resident-led painting projects—help generate strong social ties and a sense of belonging amongst community members, which has proven to reduce psychological distress, social isolation, and depression. As more and more researchers are recognizing that social health is the foundation for physical health, these findings present exciting opportunities and challenges for urban planners as well as public health advocates and practitioners.
