Latinos lack access to healthy food and safe places to walk, bike and play and are less able to adapt or recover from changing climate.
They face more social and economic barriers. They suffer higher rates of diabetes, heart disease, and asthma than their white peers.
Improving equitable access to community green space and creating sustainable foods systems and transportation networks can help to improve health and social mobility.
Join us for a #SaludTues Tweetchat on Feb. 12, 2019, to tweet about building our outdoor and ecological literacy about community green space, food systems and transportation networks.
- WHAT: #SaludTues Tweetchat: “Building our Outdoor and Ecological Literacy”
- TIME/DATE: 1-2 p.m. EST Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019
- WHERE: On Twitter with hashtag #SaludTues
- HOST: @SaludAmerica
- CO-HOSTS: Center for Ecoliteracy (@Ecoliteracy), Latino Outdoors (@LatinoOutdoors), and Park Pride (@parkpride)
We’ll open the floor to research, resources and your experiences as we explore:
- Why the outdoors are important for health and social mobility;
- What role food systems and transportation networks play in sustaining or degrading the outdoors; and
- Effective strategies to sustain the outdoors.
