Community Mapping Workshop in D.C.

umap

ReLearning Curve is partnering with GP RED and the Institute for Public Health Innovation (IPH) to deliver a community mapping workshop in Washington, D.C. on October 27-28, 2013 to explore youth perceptions of their neighborhoods as part of a CDC Community Transformation Initiative focused on safe access to recreation opportunities. The goal of the workshop is to understand how youth currently use their neighborhoods for active living, as well as their opinions about what can be improved to promote healthier lifestyles.

Workshop participants consist of 30 youth aged 13-18 from three different communities in Prince George County. Participants will engage in focus group mapping using the uMap methodology developed by ReLearning Curve’s Research Associate, Dr. Pamela Wridt. This method includes the use of aerial photography and Google Maps to document young people’s current and desired use of their neighborhood for play, recreation and social purposes. The mapping component is part of GP RED’s broader Safe Routes to Play initiative.
