The quality of urban areas is central to health. Clean air, green areas, sustainable agricultural systems, quality food, access to high-end health services are just few of essential needs for a healthy urban lifestyle and a personal physical and mental well-being. The COVID-19 pandemic has further showed how important these conditions are to ensure long-term safety of their inhabitants and biotopes, cities’ natural and agroecological systems.
Can cities become providers of health? What planning practices and instruments are necessary to protect and strengthen this health in the long-term? The 2021 edition of the Masterstudio Future Cities will address these questions. Please check the program for info and participation.
