Around the world, communities face increasing health challenges related to the built environment. ULI understands the direct link between human health and development, and supports health as a core component of thriving communities. ULI’s Building Healthy Places Initiative leverages the power of ULI’s global networks to shape projects and places in ways that improve the health of people and communities. The initiative focuses on four main areas of impact: awareness; tools; value of healthy places; and commitments.

The ULI Philippines Building Healthy Places Awards recognize outstanding and innovative projects that advance design strategies that focus on the development of environments that promote healthy living in the Philippines. Through the Healthy Places Awards, ULI is working to raise awareness of the direct link between human health and the built environment and the health consequences from land use decisions and development patterns.

Award-winners will have relevance by adding value to the community, promoting healthy life choices and enhancing the environment. Nominees should contribute to significant new ideas and perspectives. Nominees and winners will be recognized at an awards ceremony and reception on July 14, 2016 in Bonifacio Global City. This activity is part of the 1st ULI Philippines – Philippine Green Building Awards for Excellence in Sustainability and Health.

  • Ensuring equitable access
