How do we ensure human & planetary health is embedded further upstream in real-estate development decision-making?


Health - both human and planetary - is increasingly dominating the urban development and infrastructure agenda. The UK Government’s current Planetary Health Inquiry, in which cities are a core theme, is but one example.


This workshop will bring together leading thinkers and decision-makers from central and city government, property development and investment, alongside the health sector and related academia and specialist practitioners. We will hear about exciting research and practitioner case studies and then explore together how health can be better valued and integrated into core urban development decision-making at key points of influence. The objective is to ensure that better human and planetary health becomes a natural and measurable outcome. Key questions include:
  •  Where are the critical points of influence for health in urban development, who controls them, and what decision tools are used?
  • How best can human and planetary health be measured and integrated at these key points?
  • Where are the areas of tension and how can these be resolved, if at all?
  • What new information is needed?
