Sustainability. Green. Smart Growth. New urbanism. In the past decades these terms have been associated with movements within the field urban planning. The movements –or fads–have their proponents and detractors and have met with varying degrees of success. Movements, however, by their very nature are exclusive and lack long term staying power. Alternatively, healthy communities is an inclusive concept that address the most fundamental desire of all life: to be healthy. It need not be a movement, doesn’t require foundation funding or special programs, and can naturally be embraced by all disciplines and all people.
