About the Conference

The built environment has been shown to amplify problems of obesity, chronic physical ill health, social isolation, violence and crime. This conference will examine the evidence, and focus on ways we can reshape the built environment to increase physical and social health and well-being. The conference will bring together 350-400 delegates - elected officials, practitioners and scholars in planning, public health, urban design, landscape architecture, transportation planning, pediatrics, social sciences, land use development and architecture from around the world to share experience, strategies and design solutions.
