As obesity levels continue to rise in the United States, public health authorities are seeking opportunities to encourage physical activity within communities. Research has shown that there is a positive association between proximity to parks and recreational facilities and increased physical activity levels. Shared-use agreements and community use policies in many cases represent a cost-effective way to open school property to programming shared between schools and community-based groups that are aimed at increasing physical activity. This webinar will explore the nature of shared-use agreements and community use policies and their potential impact on communities. Attendees will hear from researchers and legal experts who will offer evidence-based best practices, as well as experiences from the field.
