Elevator Pitch - The “Lancet Series” on urban design, transport and population health

12 october
16.30 to 18.00
Venue: 
Network Hub

Description

Major global health challenges are being confronted in the 21st century, prompting calls to re-think approaches to disease prevention. City planning that reduces non-communicable diseases and road trauma, while managing rapid urbanisation is part of the solution. The Lancet series focuses on the health impact of city planning through transport mode options and choices. The three papers unravel the complexity of urban design, the transport system and population health and provide a paradigm shift in our approach to responding to the growing burden of chronic disease and injury in our cities. The series offers key recommendations that urban and transport planners and policymakers could implement to improve the health of urban populations.

Organizers:

  • The Lancet, London, United Kingdom
  • University of Melbourne, Astralia
