Polis Side Event "Creating the liveable, inclusive and healthy city" at the International Transport Forum on 18 May 2016 in Leipzig, Germany

31 March 2016

The Polis Working Group on Environment & Health in Transport in cooperation with the Transport, Health and Environment Pan-European Programme (THE PEP) and the PASTA project, will host a Side Event during the 2016 International Transport Forum Summit on May 18th. The event will outline the link between health and transport, including the Health economic assessment tool (HEAT) for walking and cycling, and air quality. You're invited!

Active travel is at the core of healthy, sustainable and more inclusive urban livelihoods for all. The event will showcase a range of transport, health and environment projects about promoting physical activity through sustainable transport approaches, as well as where national policy has been successfully implemented at local level.

The Transport, Health and Environment Pan-European Programme (THE PEP) will conclude the debate by discussing the challenges and opportunities of linking public health and transport by applying health economic assessment tools and policy instruments to meet the transport and mobility needs of large urban agglomerations.
