What Surrounds Us Shapes Us: Greening and other physical/built environment strategies for preventing domestic and sexual violence

Thursday, 6 June 2019

As evidence on community-level approaches to domestic and sexual violence prevention continues to emerge, practitioners are learning how physical spaces play a role in shaping social connections, behaviors and motivations that influence the likelihood of violence. Changing the physical/built environment holds promise in achieving population-level impacts and addressing multiple forms of violence at once. In this web conference, practitioners in Michigan will share how and why they are seeking to increase green spaces (e.g. parks) for domestic violence prevention through their DELTA Impact state- and local-level work. Practitioners in Salinas, CA will describe how they're implementing environmental design strategies to prevent violence affecting youth. Join PreventConnect in this discussion on how to leverage these learnings to transform physical spaces for prevention.
