The Built Environment Assessment Training (BEAT) Institute is a week-long institute designed to train investigators and practitioners tangible skills that can be used to measure many of the aspects of the built environment that are believed to have an effect on health.

What is the built environment? The built environment is defined as the buildings, roads, utilities, homes, food stores, restaurants, fixtures, parks and all other man-made entities that form the physical characteristics of a community. The built environment includes nutrition and physical activity environments, streetscapes, transportation environments, and everything in between.
