On the Health and Wellbeing of Cities: A Systems Perspective
Dans le cadre du cycle de séminaires de l'IGD "Urban multidisciplinary perspectives"
Wednesday 22 January 2020 (17h00 - 18h30) - Géopolis - 2121
In “On the Health and Wellbeing of Cities” I suggest that rethinking urban sustainability needs to be done by taking a systems approach and understanding cities as complex living systems, which are plannable and self-organising. Better understanding urban complex systems have the potential to unlock the creative capacity of people to interact and engage with one other, to provide public goods and services, improve interconnectivity, enhance communication and engage people in the co-creation of health and well-being in cities.
Prof. Franz Gatzweiler is a professor at the Institute of Urban Environment, in Xiamen, Chinese Academy of Sciences and executive director of the International Council for Science’s global interdisciplinary programme on “Urban Health and Wellbeing: a Systems Approach”.
