The AoU is happy to partner with Salus once again, for the 7th Healthy City Design 2023 International Congress, taking place in Liverpool, the birthplace of public health and one of the UK’s most creative cities.

With the support of leading UK and international partners, and the engagement of the Metro Mayor, Steve Rotheram and Liverpool City Council, Healthy City Design 2023 comes to Liverpool at an exciting time for the city.

As governments and societies grapples with the tensions between investing in a greener future and a cost of living crisis, this year’s theme will explore how urban leaders, planners and public health practitioners can activate measures that improve the lives of citizens and reduce health inequalities while addressing the wider impacts of planetary health.

From the provision of green-blue spaces, nature-based interventions and better designed housing to the application of digital technology, the rise of electric vehicles and more inclusive placemaking and community engagement, there are new drivers to reimagine the urban form of cities that are climate-resilient, healthier and more equitable.
