Two-thirds of the European population lives in cities. Rapid urbanisation is creating negative impacts on the environment, human health and well-being, especially in deprived neighbourhoods, due to air pollution, noise, climate risks, lack of social cohesion, lack of physical activity and disconnection from nature. Cities have a pivotal role in facilitating improved health and well-being by creating and providing the right physical, social, cultural and economic places and services.
We help cities evaluate and plan their neighbourhoods to address health, well-being, social and environmental challenges.
We can help you assess your city’s liveability potential and establish your priorities. Our Acceleration programme engages innovators and investors and their solutions to become a liveable city of the future.
To become a liveable city you need to mainstream multiple policy objectives horizontally across various departments and organisations, their priorities and actions. We help facilitate your working groups to effectively deliver multiple co-benefits through your urban planning processes and investment programmes.
BUSINESS MODELS OF NATURE BASED SOLUTIONS FOR ENVIRONMENT, HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
成人appExisting nature-based solutions (NBS) are being tested that primarily focus on delivering ecosystem services, but they are not designed specifically for health and well-being. There is a need for innovative solutions that go further to integrate even more urban issues.
Moreover, we need the evidence base to measure and value these solutions (e.g. what is the exact influence on air quality? Or the impact on improved health?). We can help create the business and the financial and governance models for their wider deployment.
