Abstract

By 2050, it is predicted that 70% of the world’s 9.7 billion inhabitants (UN , 2015) will live in urban areas. In the context of continuous global population growth and demographics showing a shift towards an ageing population, the value of planning and designing cities to support physical activity, sunlight, clean air, sustainable design and access to energy, access to healthy food and social inclusiveness is paramount. This is a crucial time for understanding how cities influence healthy and unhealthy behaviours and addressing the positive and negative impacts of cities on moving the healthcare and wellbeing agenda further.
