Drawing on the latest research in city planning, economics, criminology, public health, and other fields, this talk will provide an overview of the book Changing Places, which demonstrates how well-designed changes to place can significantly improve the well-being of large groups of people. Science shows we can enhance people’s health and safety by changing neighborhoods block-by-block. Changing Places explains why planners and developers need to recognize the value of scientific testing, and why scientists need to embrace the indispensable know-how of planners and developers.
