Your strategic partner through healthy community change.

Throughout 2015, Active Living By Design (ALBD) continued to diversify our projects in exciting ways as strategic thought partners to funders, community leaders, and mission partners. We are also proud that our work always includes opportunities for mutual learning. Some of the key ways we provided leadership in the field included leading learning networks, supporting collaborative strategic planning, and advising national initiatives, all with a goal to deepen capacity and advance the healthy community movement.

Bridging the past to our future.

When Active Living By Design (ALBD) started 13 years ago as a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, we focused on increasing routine physical activity by improving the environments in which people live, travel, work, and play. ALBD was at the forefront of the “active living movement,” a new paradigm that challenged the premise that health is primarily a matter of individual choice. This movement helped shift the conversation from its focus on education and behavior change to the impact of policies and environments (both social and physical) on the choices people have to be physically active.
