From 27 to 29 August 2015, the UNU International Institute for Global Health will partner with the International Council for Science (ICSU) Health and Wellbeing in the Changing Urban Environment: a Systems Analysis Approach programme to convene a conference stream on “Understanding Health and Wellbeing Linkages in Urban Systems“. The event will be held in Urbino, Italy, a World Heritage Site with a long history of thought on urban design and the intersection of the built environment with human lives.
Organized by the International Sociological Association Research Committee 21 on Sociology of Urban and Regional Development, the conference is built around the theme of “The Ideal City – Between Myth and Reality” and represents an important opportunity to integrate critical perspectives from the social sciences into systems understandings of urban health.
Early registration opens on 1 March 2015. Details are available on the RC21 website.
