The Healthy Living Inventory compiles information on healthy eating and active living programs among other healthy living programs (such as mental health, cultural activities, youth leadership, career exploration, and sexual health [in Yukon only]) in communities in Yukon and Northwest territories for the years 2016 and 2014. These maps will help program coordinators, recreation leaders, NGO's, funders, governments, and the general public, among others, to access information about the healthy initiatives going on in their communities and strengthen opportunity for collaboration, knowledge sharing and evaluation.
The Healthy Living in My Community project is a unit created for teachers, which builds off of the inventory tool and connects youth with the topic of healthy living and programs in their communities, through mapping, storytelling and hands-on experiential learning.
Story maps are creative ways to tell stories about our world using maps and other media. They are also a way to promote healthy living and celebrate community stories.
