A MORE LIVEABLE PERTH: HOW DO WE CREATE MORE PEDESTRIAN-FRIENDLY, LESS CAR DEPENDENT AND MORE SOCIALLY INCLUSIVE CITIES?
A public lecture by Jasper Schipperijn, Research Unit for Active Living, University of Southern Denmark and 2016 Institute of Advanced Studies Short Stay Visiting Fellow.
In this public lecture, International expert Dr Jasper Schipperijn will discuss how neighbourhoods provide opportunities (or barriers) for people’s health and well-being. The physical design and characteristics of the neighbourhood environment influence a range of social and health outcomes.
The urban environment influences the way in which we raise families and provide for our future. We can better support our health and well-being by creating more ‘liveable’, compact, pedestrian-friendly, less car dependent and more socially inclusive cities.
Dr Schipperijn will discuss the latest built environment and child health research.
