Healthy Cities 21st Century

Well-being for all – Reykjavik

Belfast Healthy Cities Chief Executive, Joan Devlin, attended the ‘Well-being for all – equity and health’ conference organised by the City of Reykjavik and Directorate of Health, Reykjavik.  Joan was invited to give a presentation on ‘Healthy Cities – Connected for Health’ including the experience of Belfast being a healthy city across all six phases since the inception of the European Healthy Cities Network.   

Joan also facilitated a further workshop with key staff from the Directorate of Health and City of Reykjavik on the health equity tool developed in Belfast.  The workshop took place in Höfði House, which famously hosted the 1986 summit meeting of Presidents Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev.
