Integrating urban transport planning, environment and health for healthier urban living.
Urban Transitions 2022 aims to promote healthy urban development by bringing together different disciplines working within cities. The event will feature world-leading experts in urban and transport planning, architecture, environmental exposure assessment, environmental epidemiology, physical activity, climate change, public health and governance discussing current challenges and solutions in these topics.
Cities suffer from many environmental, climate change and health problems. Poor urban and transport planning is part of the problem, but can also be part of the solution. There is great potential for improvement through targeted and integrated policies. However, the urban environment is a complex interlinked system. Decision-makers need enhanced understanding of the linkages involved, cities need better knowledge, and multi-sectorial approaches are needed to tackle the current problems. Urban Transitions 2022 will address science and practice and provide pathways to low carbon, liveable, equitable and healthy cities.
