Towards Healthy Cities in the Age of Pandemics

Thursday July 2, 5:00pm - 6:30 pm HKT (11.00am - 12.30pm CET)

Series 3 (July) - Webinar 1

 

This webinar is part of the initiative '2020: A Year without Public Space under the COVID-19 Pandemic'.

 

 

This session presents the findings of a comparative study on the Role of Urban Forms in Making Sustainable, Healthy Cities, funded by the Worldwide University Network. The purpose of this study innovate research on urban community well-being at the intersection of urban and health sciences by initiating an international, interdisciplinary research network based at the University of Auckland, University of Sydney and the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

 

Understanding the correlations between the transformation over time of urban spatialities and residents’ health and well-being provides a new way for public health research in addressing contemporary, timely issues pertinent to rapid urbanization. As a test bed for the project, Hong Kong, Sydney and Auckland were investigated as dynamic laboratories for contemporary urbanism and urban growth. While compact urban form and efficient public transport are primary objective for sustainable development, these three cities are concurrently suffering from unaffordable housing, socio-spatial polarization and privatisation of quality public space, placing its residents at the sake of multidimensional distress. 

 

The webinar will bring together a group of specialists from urban design, planning, policy, environmental and public health to discuss how these urban issues represent a complex phenomenon that is not likely being resolved through a single discipline approach. In line with the scopes of UN’s SDGs in promoting healthy lives and well-being, this webinar will outline how this collaborative research chartered a new agenda to study “sciences of cities” where the overarching aim lies in what types of built forms and spatial behaviours promote better health and well-being.
