Built Environment and Active Transportation (BEAT)

BEAT was a joint initiative between the BC Recreation and Parks Association and the Union of BC Municipalities and was funded through the BC Healthy Living Alliance.

Healthy communities don’t happen by accident. How our buildings, parks, transportation networks are designed, and other elements of the so-called “built environment” can have a profound effect on encouraging or discouraging physical activity.

Built Environment refers to all human-made surroundings - the spaces where we live, work and play. the built environment includes tangible structures, such as buildings, streets, parks, businesses, schools, road systems, transportation networks, and other infrastructure.
