Creating healthy cities for all: Designing for equity and resilience

15-16 October 2018
Royal College of Physicians, London, UK


The Call for Papers for the second Healthy City Design 2018 International Congress & Exhibition has been launched under the plenary theme of ‘Creating healthy cities for all: Designing for equity and resilience’.

Organised by SALUS Global Knowledge Exchange in collaboration with the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design, Royal College of Art, the Healthy City Design 2018 (HCD 2018) International Congress & Exhibition seeks to share and stimulate new research, innovative practice and progressive policy ideas on how to design for urban health and wellbeing.


In less than 200 years, the proportion of the world’s population living in cities has grown from 5 per cent to more than half. By 2050, cities will need to house 2.5 billion additional people. As our planet urbanises, how do we promote sustainable development, wellbeing and inclusive growth in creating cities and communities that are resilient, equitable and fair to all?


C3 is pleased to be an HCD event partner and programme committee member again this year. HCD 2017 was excellent and we’re looking forward to another inspirational event with leaders in health and sustainability. We hope that many from C3’s network will join us on the day and submit their work for consideration.

Abstracts for the presentation of papers, posters, workshops and colloquiums should be submitted by 22 May 2018 at www.healthycitydesign.global. Click here to download the abstract guidelines.
