And you have a huge opportunity, as a designer, as a policy maker, as a city planner, to influence the health and well-being of all of the residents that you are now planning or designing or making decisions for. We’re trying to understand, how do we build? How do we urbanise, but how do we do it in a way that’s also going to influence in a positive way the health and well-being of the people who live in these cities? You’ll start with understanding, what are the key ingredients of what makes a healthy and a livable city? What are the social determinants of health?
Skip to 0 minutes and 43 seconds How can you use indicators and data to help in evaluation and measurement of these cities? How can you use economic evaluation? How can you use qualitative data? And importantly, how can you implement and apply this knowledge? We’re going to be looking at cities around the world, including yours. So we’ve got some great interactive exercises for you to explore, because we really want you to be able to take the learning and apply it. And the best way is to apply it to somewhere you already know. And the examples that you share will help you take this forward into a project that you can now develop in your own community.
Skip to 1 minute and 20 seconds We’ve also got some world experts to talk to you, to share their experiences of what they’ve learned. So be prepared. We’re going to challenge your thinking. We’re going to teach you some new tools, and we hope you can take that and apply it in your learning and practise to really create some impact. Thank you for joining us.
