Active Living Community Workshops March 15 & 17 on Wai`anae Coast

The State of Hawaii Department of Health, Healthy Hawaii Initiative is excited to be hosting (4) Active Living Community Workshops. Active Living Communities are designed to provide opportunities for people to engage in routine daily physical activity and healthy eating. Active Living is promoted by having bicycle and pedestrian friendly designs, mixed-use developments, recreational facilities and schools located in walkable and bikeable neighborhoods. The workshops will be held:

Train the Trainer Workshops
In addition, we will be providing the opportunity for a multi-disciplinary team of engineers, developers, planners, department of health professionals, advocates and concerned community members to develop the skills necessary to deliver Active Living Community workshops. As part of this free training, participants will be required to deliver two additional training sessions in partnership with the Department of Health over the course of the 12 month period following attendance at the workshop. It is an exciting opportunity for all of us who are interested in these issues to learn together, plan together and design a healthier Hawaii . Please should you wish to participate, please contact me by Friday, March 7th, 2008.
