Planetary Health is a scientific discipline, a philosophy for living and a social movement. Cities can be drivers of enormous power for the required transformative changes. Therefore, innovative urban development presents major opportunities to improve population health, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prepare for health risks exacerbated by climate change. Unlocking their transformative power, cities are key settings for the implementation of a diverse set of interventions to address major planetary health challenges. Lecturers will highlight key facets of transdisciplinary and transformative urban development for a healthy and good life in cities. They will present the situation and stories of two cities, one in the south, one in the north.
