Creating healthy cities- Labour Party Fringe Event

Panel at 2021 fringe with chair Cllr Merry
September 27, 2022 5:30 pm to 6:45 pm
Liverpool Exhibition Centre
The UK’s cities are increasingly unhealthy. Air pollution kills tens of thousands of people each year, with 40 UK towns or cities exceeding World Health Organisation air pollution limits. If you live in a city you are more likely to be depressed, lonely and obese. Meanwhile, an ageing population presents enormous challenges for health and social care provision.

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.

Speaker lined up to be confirmed.
