Einladung: European Public Health Week | Lunchtime Talk: The role of urban planning in enhancing health and climate equity

The recently established Competence Centre on Climate and Health at the Austrian National Public Health Institut (Gesundheit Österreich GmbH) cordially invites you to an online lunchtime-talk on Wednesday, May 18 2022 from 12:00 – 13:15 pm (CET) on the topic: the role of urban planning in enhancing health and climate equity.

In the context of increasing urbanisation, the role of urban planning is gaining in importance. The design of urban living spaces offers solutions for future challenges: resilient cities not only aim to mitigate the impacts of climate change, but also positively influence the quality of life, housing, and recreation of urban population. In addition, it can be seen as a lever to promote health and reduce the impacts of pre-existing inequalities. Experts from Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal), EuroHealthNet and Vienna Solutions will present flashlights on science, on practice and on policy to outline the triple-win potential of urban planning and share their experiences and know-how with interested urban, health and climate experts and practitioners.
