Healthy Cities Symposium

4th May 2011

After the success of the first UCL-Lancet Commission on the Health Effects of Climate Change, UCL and The Lancet are collaborating again on a second report, this time on Healthy Cities under the banner of the UCL Grand Challenge on Sustainable Cities.

The project has involved a number of academics from a variety of disciplines coming together to deliver a report. The first section of the report has a historical and conceptual focus and the second half deals with a number of built environment interventions and their impact on health.  The report includes a number of case studies of various cities across the world and concludes with a set of recommendations for policy.

A symposium was held on 4th May 2011 at which key arguments were presented from the project and valuable feedback gained prior to formal submission of the report to The Lancet in June 2011.
