Policy Blueprints and Guides

LiveWell Colorado collaborates across multiple sectors in the development of policy blueprints and guides that assess current initiatives, recommend actionable strategies, and provide the overall direction and framework for statewide efforts around specific policy topics. With a focus on Colorado, these publications help guide state and local efforts while also providing examples and best practices to the rest of the nation. 

Food Policy Blueprint
LiveWell Colorado’s Food Policy Blueprint provides an overview and priority list of policy recommendations – at the local, state and national levels – that have the potential to significantly improve healthy food access in Colorado. These recommendations were developed after a review of national efforts, a scan of current statewide activities, as well as outreach to stakeholders in the food policy arena.

Built Environment Policy Blueprint
LiveWell Colorado’s Built Environment Policy Blueprint examines how the built environment may be affecting health outcomes throughout Colorado, and what communities are doing to increase opportunities for healthy eating and active living. Specifically, the Blueprint provides communities and stakeholders across Colorado with recommendations on how to best leverage and adapt their environment – including neighborhoods, streets, gardens, and transportation routes – to encourage healthy behaviors and combat obesity.

Guide to Integrating Healthy Eating and Active Living into Colorado’s Rural and Small Town Communities
LiveWell Colorado‘s Guide to Integrating Healthy Eating and Active Living into Colorado’s Rural and Small Town Communities focuses on the unique challenges and opportunities of integrating healthy eating and active living (HEAL) into the physical infrastructure of rural and small town communities in Colorado. The first in a two-part series that highlights the realities of specific geographic contexts in Colorado, the Guide provides action strategies and ideas around healthy food access, physical activity and mobility. It also follows and builds on LiveWell Colorado’s 2010 Food and Built Environment Policy Blueprints.

Guide to Integrating Healthy Eating and Active Living into Colorado’s Suburban and Urban Communities
LiveWell Colorado’s Guide to Integrating Healthy Eating and Active Living into Colorado’s Suburban and Urban Communities focuses on the unique challenges and opportunities of integrating healthy eating and active living (HEAL) into the physical infrastructure of suburban and urban communities in Colorado. The second in a two-part series that highlights the realities of specific geographic contexts in Colorado, the Guide provides action strategies and ideas around healthy food access, physical activity and mobility. It also follows and builds on LiveWell Colorado’s 2010 Food and Built Environment Policy Blueprints.

Colorado Farm to School Primer
The Colorado Farm to School Primer provides a broad introduction to farm to school in Colorado and was designed to educate and inspire individuals to learn more about how they can become part of the movement to bring healthier foods to Colorado school children while enhancing Colorado’s local and farm economies.

Worksite Wellness Policy Blueprint
LiveWell Colorado’s Worksite Wellness Blueprint provides tools to understand current worksite wellness activities in the state and work plans to identify, prioritize and guide future activities. Blueprint components include the following: 1) An environmental scan of current worksite wellness successes, needs and barriers in Colorado; 2) A purpose and structure for a Colorado Worksite Wellness Leadership Group; 3) A Colorado Worksite Wellness Framework to serve as a comprehensive, informed resource for employers wanting to implement worksite wellness within their organizations.
