Cities for Humans: Scaling Solutions for Health

Date TBA
Cities for Humans: Scaling Solutions for Health

The diseases that humanity faces today are very different from a century ago. Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), are collectively responsible for almost 70% of all deaths worldwide. The rise of NCDs has been driven by risk factors, as physical inactivity, tobacco use, harmful consumption of alcohol, and unhealthy diets.
Considering that people will live 120 years, it’s important to rethink our behaviour to minimize these risk factors. We need to establish collaboration and find solutions to prevent diseases and improve population health in a sustainable way. The speakers will show initiatives where the use of technology, big data and design help us to reshape urban environments and health systems to enable this transformation and move faster for a future with a healthier society.
