The SDGs and the New Urban Agenda have set a monumental task for the world, with a first-ever focus on the challenges and opportunities associated with urban areas. In developing economies, many urban challenges are compounded by the threat of climate change, by widespread informal settlements, and by the long-term health effects of the built environment. Across all nations, the challenge of effectively managing the process of urbanisation to prevent disease and improve health outcomes presents a critical challenge. Against this background the conference aims to bring together practitioners, academics, communities, and policymakers from all levels to share knowledge and learning from around the world.

Main topics:

  • The Governance of Complex Systems
  • Culture and Inclusivity
  • Disasters, Epidemics, and the Unexpected
  • Cities as Economic Engines
  • Monitoring and Evaluation of Urban Health Indicators
  • Safety, Security, and Justice
  • Spiritual Health in the City

Abstracts are invited on the conference themes for oral and poster presentations, pre-formed panels, workshops and special tracks at the conference. Deadline for abstract-submission: 14th May 2018

The participation fee depends onpersonal status and date of registration; early bird conditions are available up to 3rd September 2018.
