Owing to a number of requests, we have extended the abstracts deadline for the Call for Papers for the 7th Healthy City Design 2023 International Congress & Exhibition.
SALUS is partnering with the international Routledge journal Cities & Health to publish a Healthy City Design Congress Special Issue of Cities & Health, providing opportunities for both academic exposure, practitioner impact, and policy insight.
This year’s plenary theme is ‘Urban renewal and health equity: Charting a sustainable path locally and globally’.
When national governments go astray, it’s useful to have other people who can step in and drive the conversation in the right direction. In the urban health space, that means action on equity, planetary health, and the wider determinants of health.
Health creation in the form of interventions that positively improve health and wellbeing should be the determining factor for built environment, planning and placemaking policies. That’s according to Prof Rachel Cooper OBE, who opened the second day of the Healthy City Design 2022 Congress with a keynote talk on ‘what creates healthy cities’.
In concluding the 6th Healthy City Design 2022 Congress, there was a chance to reward, celebrate and honour some of the leading lights of the event.
