Community Health Through Sustainability

 
Community health can be improved with sustainable goals.

The EPA is recognizing four communities that have made efforts to reduce air pollution and improve health for through implementation of sustainable goals. 

The Building Healthy Communities for Active Aging awards are given out to communities with commitments that reduce air pollution, reduce water contaminants, maintain active lifestyles, and enhance quality of life.

This year’s winners in the achievement category are the City of Charlotte, N.C. and the Brazos Valley Council of Governments, Texas. The winners in the commitment category are the Fairfax County Department of Neighborhood and Community Services, VA. and the Philadelphia Corporation on Aging, PA.

“Communities that recognize that design matters contribute to the quality of life of persons of all ages and the environment,” says John Frece, director of EPA’s Office of Sustainable Communities.

 “When communities invest in diverse means to get around and build active aging into our daily lives, they receive the environmental dividends of both a healthy environment and a better quality of life for residents of all ages.”
