Future Cities Catapult: Healthy Cities

Future Cities Catapult: Healthy Cities

The health concerns associated with urban living are not new, but they are challenges that are growing in significance. We are only now starting to begin to understand or see the effects of many of them. How do we cope with health concerns over the rapid expansion of urban living? Is technology the solution or the root cause? In this session a number of key topics will be outlined in presentations by experts and then explored further in a chaired panel discussion. Topics will include the role of technology in air quality; place-making for better mental health; and the role of policy in effecting real change.

In association with Future Cities Catapult.
