A truly sustainable city must also be a healthy one. At this Sustainable Cities Round Table we will explore the nexus between environment and health. How are healthy cities also more environmentally-friendly? How can greater happiness help the planet? We will hear from a range of experts and practitioners in topics covering carbon-neutral transport to consumption, parks and diet. This event also features international guest speaker, John Whitelegg.

The Sustainable Cities Round Tables are a regular series of events that showcase local environmental initiatives and encourage networking for people working in urban sustainability issues across the government, academic, industry and community sectors.
