Georgia Butina Watson: HEALTHY CITIES

There has been much debate recently about planning and designing cities, towns and neighbourhoods that promote and support healthy living and healthy experiences of all age groups. This is particularly important to all of us as we live longer and want to age well, during all stages of our lives.
There is also much evidence that natural and built environment, social and other factors can promote and support physical and mental health and well-being. The way we design
cities, streets, open spaces and housing play an important role in living healthier lives. This topic will be discussed through an overview of the present state of debates and through a number of case studies drawn from Europe and the UK with a view to derive some useful transferable lessons for healthy placemaking. The presentation will include a general discussion on the presented topic.

GEORGIA BUTINA WATSON is Professor of Urban Design in the School of the Built Environment at Oxford Brookes University. She is also Academician and Regional Convenor of the Academy of Urbanism (Oxford region), and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
