A Well-Being Mandate: City Building in the 21st Century
The way we build cities shapes how people live. City building can create positive or negative health outcomes. It can contribute to or detract from the genuine well-being of individuals and communities. Drawing on her experience as Mayor of Victoria, on examples from other cities and on healthy cities and urban development literature Mayor Helps will make a case for the importance of city design, city planning and public engagement in enhancing the health and well-being of city dwellers.
