Evolving attitudes, behaviors, practices and environments to get more Canadians and their communities more active, more often and in more ways in everyday life is generational work involving all of us. In response Vivo for Healthier Generations and multi- sector partners are advancing an innovative, healthy-living lab called Generation Healthy or Gen H- a generation who were born into but choose to be a part of.

The Gen H Lab is dedicated to working with multi- sectors, developing evidence –based, community-driven, on the ground solutions across all ages to make a positive, measurable, social impact on the health of citizens and communities.

During this session, Cynthia Watson and Nicole Dawe will share some of the epic successes and fails over the last 5 years on how you can shift practices to change results and work differently and with others to build capacity in individuals at play, school, work and home by transforming and linking community assets into supportive environments reinforcing life-long healthy behaviors.
