In this article Kelsey Thomas shared the following photo as the winner of a contest that Penn Institute for Urban Research and the Center for Public Health initiated. The contest was designed for photographers to capture the ways public spaces and environments promote health and well-being to get people involved with outdoor life. The photo above was taken be Ben Chrisinger in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park. There were two other runner-ups who captured pictures at a Philadelphia waterfront pop-up park and Schuylkill River Trail. The purpose of the contest was to demonstrate how various urban environments make people be physically involved and active. From the lakes and forest trails to the community recreational centers, how do urban environments keep people from being couch potatoes to physically active. I found this article interesting and very intriguing to get you thinking more about how people use their surroundings to become more active instead of sitting around.
