Greener Cities - Healthier Communities
We are delighted to invite you to the International Conference and Workshop: Greener Cities - Healthier Communities in Limerick City Hall on May 31, 2022 (in-person event), Ireland. The conference is being organized by the City of Limerick, the project partner of the URBACT Health & Greenspace Action Planning Network.
Health&Greenspace Action Planning Network links green infrastructure design and management to urban health policies and practices. With 9 European Union municipality partners the project focuses on the physical and mental health benefits of urban greenspaces, as well as their role in improving social health and air quality and reducing heat stress in cities. Actions targeted by the network are linked to both physical changes to the urban environment and the promotion of social activities such as community, cultural, education and physical activity programs in green areas.
The conference and workshop will present the main conclusions and best practices from the Health&Greenspace Network focusing on green spaces and health promotion, natural playspaces, outdoor education and noise reduction with greenery. Our partners’ presentations will be followed by interactive discussions. Please have a look at the agenda attached.
The venue will be Istabraq Hall in the City Hall of Limerick (Merchants Quay, Limerick, V94EH90), Ireland.
The conference language will be English.
We look forward to seeing you! If you are interested in participating, please register here until 20th of May
