Hosted by the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in Healthy Liveable Communities, this conference will showcase the latest research on the key elements of liveable cities.
By 2050 Australia's urban population may double, increasing pressure on transport, congestion, infrastructure and housing affordability. Planning that creates compact, pedestrian-friendly and inclusive cities can overcome these challenges. Globally, liveable cities are recognised as part of the solution to chronic disease and health inequities.
However, there is a gap between the aspirations of liveability and its delivery in practice. Designing Healthy Liveable Cities will help bridge the divide by bringing together academics, policy-makers and practitioners working to create better cities.
Please join us and explore real solutions to creating healthier, more liveable cities.
