We develop tools, resources, and best practices to help all Alta disciplines meaningfully integrate health and equity into their project work.
Health means a person has complete physical, mental, and social well-being. At Alta, we advance health through planning, landscape architecture, engineering, and education/encouragement programs that create safe and active communities.
Equity means everyone has what they need to thrive. We advance equity by meaningfully engaging with community stakeholders, including those who are typically difficult to reach, and helping to allocate resources and opportunities for lower income communities and communities of color who have historically experienced disinvestment.
Health Equity means all people have full access to opportunities that enable them to lead healthy lives. We advance health equity by promoting social, economic, and environmental conditions that enable people to safely walk and bike in their communities, helping them to achieve optimal physical and mental health and well-being regardless of gender, race/ethnicity, age, geographic location, socioeconomic status, ability, and sexual orientation.
