In 2022, Key Cities, a network for 25 cities based across the country, launched a new report on The Healthy City, which set out a new vision for cities in 2050 to be based on a ‘health first principle’ that makes the case for cities to increase their support and promotion of mental, physical and social health through a number of policies and reform at both the local and national level.
This panel debate will discuss how policy must move fast to create healthy cities and what role national and local government has to play alongside the value that community and third sector groups can provide.
