Healthy Cities 21st Century

Second Seminar of Healthy Places, Healthy People series

This second seminar in the Healthy Places, Healthy People series, gave an overview of how transport can contribute to healthy, vibrant and prosperous neighbourhoods, including examples of existing good practice. Planning can play an important role in improving connectivity and promoting more sustainable patterns of transport and travel as part of the transition to a low carbon economy. Active travel and more sustainable forms of travel can help tackle health issues such as obesity and support physical activity and mental health.
