Published 2019 SCUP Annual Conference | July 2019
Presented by Matt Dolf, Dennis J. Swinford, Paula Swinford

The Okanagan Charter: An International Charter for Health Promoting University and Colleges provides a common language, principles, and framework for integrating complex issues of health, wellbeing, and sustainability on campuses. This session will show how planners can use the Okanagan Charter as a framework to promote health and wellbeing in the built environment, along with policies and culture. We'll also talk specifically about how the quality and design of the physical environment plays a critical role in the promotion of health and wellbeing.
