Healthy Urban Living

How healthy is living in a large, densely populated city? The urban environment can influence public health in several ways, for instance through the accessibility of healthy transport and food options, and providing opportunities for physical activity and social engagement. The research performed within the Healthy Urban Living theme assesses the links between these different issues and health with the ultimate goal to advance our understanding on how we can design cities that promote the health of the city and its inhabitants.
