Seminar "Health in cities: making it everyone's business"

Date: Wednesday, 10 May 2017 09:00 - 13:00

Venue: Committee of the Regions building  |  City: Brussel, Belgium

The secretariat of the European Committee of the Regions' Commission for Natural Resources (NAT) is organising, together with the UN WHO Regional Office for Europe a half day seminar on 'Health in Cities' on 10 May.
Bringing together the wealth of knowledge of the United Nations' WHO, four European Commission's Directorates General and a range of high level municipal representatives, the event will explore the synergies between health, environment, climate change, mobility and other urban policies and will offer opportunities to reflect how European, national and local policy-making can make a positive impact on health outcomes of European citizens.
Cities will play an important role in health promotion in the coming decades owing to the phenomenon of urbanisation. More than 72% of all Europeans live in cities and this percentage is expected to rise to 80% by 2050. European cities are amongst the best places in the world to live and are known for their competitiveness, innovation and quality of life. Yet, simultaneously, cities and urban areas are increasingly challenged when it comes to the quality of air , the seamlessness of public transport, the number and location of green spaces, the length of cycling paths and many other parameters that affect health outcomes of their citizens. Compounded by socio-economic factors, these outcomes may vary greatly between the cities and within them. Some of these questions can be solved by the cities themselves; others by individuals concerned; in the long term however many of these issues may need to be tackled through an integrated approach, drawing on examples of good policy and practice designed and tested by fellow urban authorities.
The meeting will be held in English with simultaneous interpreting, allowing you to listen and speak in French, Italian, Spanish and German as well.
As there are limited places available, please register as soon as possible in order to secure your participation:

Please note that – due to security reasons - only registered persons have access to the Committee's building. #EUevents
