Funded by the British Council’s Newton-Ungku Omar Fund, “Systems Thinking and Place-based Methods for Healthier Malaysian Cities” (SCHEMA) is a joint project between the Cardiff University Sustainable Places Research Institute (CU-PLACE) and the UNU International Institute for Global Health (UNU-IIGH). SCHEMA advocates a holistic, socio-ecological perspective on health and wellbeing, and encourages better decision making for urban health and sustainability.
The SCHEMA Case Studies, which will be launched at the Ninth Session of the World Urban Forum in Kuala Lumpur, show how systems thinking and place-based methods can improve our understanding of persistent urban problems. This public seminar is part of the rolling launch of the SCHEMA Case Studies. Project partners from CU-PLACE and Case Study contributors will share insights on a variety of issues related to urban health and wellbeing, ranging from food consumption to land use.
For more information on the seminar, or to register, see the event announcement on the UNU-IIGH website.
