Healthy Urban Childhoods 2019

We thank our delegates for making Healthy Urban Childhoods into such a success. The conversation continues on twitter, hashtags #UaHS19 and #healthyurbanchildhoods.

The Summit will support the work that takes place on global and national levels, with a special focus on improving knowledge and changing behaviours around antibiotic resistance.

Healthy Urban Childhoods will focus on how to strengthen the child perspective in urban planning to create healthier and more inclusive cities for children. The two-day summit takes place 8-9 October at Uppsala Castle, in Uppsala, Sweden.

Our goal is to provide an arena that could be truly helpful in development of input for interventions based on what we indeed know about child-friendly city planning, well-functioning urban playscapes, the health situation among children and the key factors that could generate physical literacy. We also must learn to from listening to children’s own knowledge about what characterizes suitable and attractive urban environments that influence their learning, joy, and pleasure.
