Oct6Drawing on a paper from a recently launched Lancet Series on Urban Design, Transport and Health, this seminar will focus on unpicking the complex nature of city and building design on health and wellbeing.
LSE Cities is an international centre at the London School of Economics and Political Science that carries out research, education and outreach activities in London and abroad. Its mission is to study how people and cities interact in a rapidly urbanising world, focusing on how the design of cities impacts on society, culture and the environment. Through research, conferences, teaching and projects, the centre aims to shape new thinking and practice on how to make cities fairer and more sustainable for the next generation of urban dwellers, who will make up some 70 per cent of the global population by 2050.
The final policy paper of Policy Unit 4, co-led by LSE Cities and UCLG, for the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (Habitat III).
