Welcome back


This week, we’ll explore the role of indicators and data as an integral part of understanding healthy liveable cities.

In particular we’ll focus on:

  • measuring liveability and how this relates to sustainable and healthy transport options
  • issues related to how and what to measure by investigating international examples of how indicators and evidence can be used to plan healthy cities
  • the role of indicators in urban policy development, and the ways in which indicators are used to understand, monitor and report changes related to policy objectives over time
  • a number of tools and frameworks that can be used to generate evidence to influence policy related to transport and health in cities.
  • Your mobility case study

    You’ll also have the opportunity to work on your mobility case study. This week, you will start exploring what data is available in your chosen locality and how to apply the Healthy Urban and Planning Transport Checklist to your case study.

    Remember to take notes in your Google Doc or Word Doc as you go.
