The way in which we design and plan our cities have profound implications on human behavior, emotions and well-being. Thus, understanding and acknowledging the importance of the reciprocal relationship that exist between people and place, will allow for a more human-centric and grounded approach to urban design and architecture. This is especially true when it comes to fostering and promoting public health and quality of life. Well-designed public spaces, neighborhoods and cities do have the ability to foster both physical, mental and social health. But how do we do it? What are the factors that contribute to facilitating the health-promoting city? In this session, COurban will first provide a set of guidelines to follow when planning and designing for enhanced public health and after, the participants will be invited to put the guidelines into practice in a workshop.
