HEALTHY NEIGHBORHOODS COALITION
The Healthy Neighborhoods Coalition focuses on building safe, thriving neighborhoods in central Vancouver. Coalition members engage in collaborative planning and advocacy to create sustainable, healthy neighborhoods where everyone can safely live, learn, work, play, do business, and grow spiritually. The coalition’s work focuses on three priority areas: increase access to healthy foods, build and support community-school connections, and build and support community connections for neighborhood initiated work.
Coalition members participated in a series of video workshops and then gathered video footage on issues they wanted to highlight about their communities. The videos document some of the community’s challenges but also highlight the strength and resiliency of the community in working together to address these challenges.
