More than half of the world’s population now live in cities, compared to only 5% in the 18th century. This rapid urbanisation has resulted in inadequate infrastructure, physical inactivity, gentrification, air pollution, and growing numbers of slum dwellers – all factors that are now challenging the health and wellbeing of the people living in cities.
In this programme, you will learn about the key determinants of urban health and the history of major trends in urban planning, alongside innovative and people-centered approaches to creating sustainable solutions. Presentations and cases are provided by researchers and a range of local and global stakeholders engaged in urban planning.
