Urban Health COnference: Concepts, consequences and challenges for health, French Embassy Berlin
Whether people are or remain healthy, is influenced by both their living circumstances and environment. A city’s transportation system, spatial layout, housing conditions, and safety are all factors that interact to create complex vulnerabilities in urban environments that affect health and contribute to health inequities.
The conference will be held on June 29th, 2018 from 10.00 am until 3.30 pm.
However, novel concepts in how to design and manage a city or a district are emerging that promote behaviors conducive to health and ultimately better health outcomes.
In this conference, experts from France and Germany will explain major health threats for residents of urban environments, but also share visions and concrete prototypes for a healthier life in large cities.
The conference is moderated by Derrick Williams, Deutsche Welle Science &Healthcare correspondent.
The conference is free of charge, registration is required. The conference will be held in English.
Registration starts at 9:15 h at the French Embassy in Germany
