The health concerns associated with urban living are not new, but they are challenges that are growing in significance. We are only now starting to begin to understand or see the effects of many of them. How do we cope with health concerns over the rapid expansion of urban living? Is technology the solution or the root cause?
A number of key topics will be outlined as part of expert presentations delivered in this session followed by a chance to debate the issues in a chaired panel. Topics will include the role of technology in air quality; place-making for better mental health; and the role of policy in effecting real change.
Future Cities Catapult is presenting the Festival of the Future City in collaboration with the Bristol Festival of Ideas. This is one of a series of Future Cities Catapult sessions, aimed particularly at SMEs but open to all, that will showcase the best in the advanced urban services sector and the innovations that hope to have a positive impact upon city health, urban mobility and integrated infrastructure.
