World health, environmental, behavioural and social science experts have launched a major new interdisciplinary scientific collaboration. It aims to empower planners and policy-makers to achieve better health for billions of people living in fast-growing urban areas.
We have a great new programme for the February 2015 Public Health Summer School, with seminars on sustainable urban transport, climate change, and affordable housing. Start the new year with a day of inspiration and learning. Register by 19 December and get an earlybird discount.
Congratulations to our fellow research group, the He Kainga Oranga/ Housing and Health Research Programme, led by Professor Philippa Howden-Chapman, who have won the 2014 Prime Minister’s Science Prize.
