This course is designed to help students understand how the environment can influence physical activity behavior and other health outcomes. Students will explore how two countries (Netherlands and Denmark) with differing environments affect lifestyle, leisure, and transport-related physical activity behaviors in children, adults, and older adults. While in Amsterdam and Copenhagen, students will visit key cultural and historical sites, experience urban design features (e.g., parks, cycling infrastructure) related to pedestrian and biking behavior, and learn from the instructors, peer class members, and academic and local officials in each location.
