Bottom- up control rather than having someone from the city who has no idea what it is like to interact with that environment making decisions (top-down) Outcome: · Top-down effect does not work at this level, focus on the community and their own experiences · Long term development plans- light/unwelcoming train station/ green space for children/ better access to food and jobs _________________________________________________________________ Movie Screening #2: Copenhagen- Drug Addiction Main Health Issues: Social isolation leading to drug use/ Accessibility to drugs within the community Scope: · Drug use= important because life expectancy of these youth who possess individual talents (as seen in the movie) are effected, shortened.
