Call for Applications: Urban Dynamics and Health Conference

As part of our new interdisciplinary initiative "Health and wellbeing in the changing urban environment", we are co-organising a series of international conferences on urban dynamics and health. Applications for the first conference, to be held in Paris in September 2013, are now open and will close on January 31st.

Initiated by the « Espace, Santé et Territoires » laboratory at Paris Ouest University and the French national network of local decision-makers for public health, this international conference is a part of our new interdisciplinary initiative “Health and wellbeing in the changing urban environment: a systems analysis approach”. This will be the first in a series of four conferences to be held in Asia (2014), Latin America (2015) and Africa (2016).

More than half of the world's population now lives in cities. This increasing urbanisation raises new health issues regarding health determinants, inequalities in health, and the roles social, economic,  urban planning and health care policies play in shaping the distribution of health within and between cities.

This call is open to researchers, public health actors, urban planning actors, local representatives, and elected officials invested in reduction of socio-territorial health inequalities. The deadline for receiving applications is on January 31st.

For more detailed information please download the call for proposals in English or French (Word document).
