- Urban planning
Main policy issue to be addressed in relation to the selected topics
Have you already been involved in an URBACT network?
The project proposes to create a network of cities to deepen the relationship between health and the urban environment. Analyze how urban planning affects the health of the inhabitants and propose an action in order to assess its impact on health.
Some of the thematic areas that the project could explore are:
• Urban Planning:
o Healthy City: Improve health through Master Plan
o Innovative Urban Planning (walkability, density, greening, polycentric, etc.)
o Open public spaces
o Health Impact Assessment: evaluation, indicators.
o Citizen participation
The project “Healthy cities: from Planning to action” could be a great opportunity to work together with other cities that have similar interests and challenges.
Some cities may consider actions to improve health around social cohesion, recovery of degraded environments, promoting active mobility, physical activity or others. In any case, the global health perspective, will allow us to share objectives and methodologies to achieve the goals.
