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.
Since launching in 2017, the Healthy City Design International Congress has established itself as one of the must-attend events for the health and urban design communities.
