Urban planning and health: integration of transport and land use
Facilitator: Clare Walter – AQ&H SIG Co-chair
Time: 4.30 pm – 6.30 pm AEST
The Air Quality and Health SIG and Transport SIG have collaborated to present three AIR TALKS on the public health impacts of traffic related air pollution. Each event will step you through emissions and their effects on human health; transport planning, international and local focus; and finally, mitigation. The SIGs have prepared an impressive list of eight speakers with a local and international focus as well as speakers with expertise in different, but related subject areas. Just what we need to understand the complex puzzle of transport and health.
The sessions will run consecutively on 17 June, 18 June and 19 June.
This AIR TALK focuses on health, urban planning and the integration of land use and transport. The event will provide both an international and local focus with presentations from Dr Mark Nieuwenhuijsen, Spain, and Adam Terrill, Australia. However urban planning and integration of uses is not just an academic exercise with the burden of planning decisions resting with the community. Recognising this, the session includes two community perspectives, Dr Kate Lycett, Australia, and Jemima Hartshorn, London.
