Students at the Colorado School of Public Health launched an interactive, online community engagement tool April 4 during National Public Health Week called Everyday Colorado.
Everyday Colorado investigates the intersection of the environment, public health and community development. The public engagement tool aims to generate knowledge from communities around the state about local environmental concerns, values, experiences and successes. It is a statewide initiative involving the Colorado School of Public Health, Colorado State University, Tri-County Health Department and public health professionals throughout Colorado.
The project explores both the everyday and emerging environmental health issues across Colorado’s varied and changing landscapes.
After obtaining stories from Colorado residents that are shared online, Everyday Colorado will publish a comprehensive results report later this year, highlighting local and professional perspectives about Coloradans’ values and necessary action steps to prepare the state for emerging challenges.
This project is co-directed by Colorado School of Public Health professors, Dr. Jill Litt (CU Anschutz Medical Campus) and Dr. Jennifer Peel (Colorado State University) and Tom Butts from the Tri-County Health Department.
