The final discussion of Urban Health Congress

Urban Health in Russia. Next Steps

Russia is experiencing a boom of interest in urbanism and urban development: a comfortable urban environment, public design, citizen engagement become a priority of many programmes and dozens of urban transformation projects are being implemented in the country. Integrating well-being and health guidelines into the development agenda of Russian cities seem, first of all, relevant and, secondly, important in the long term. However, the Urban Health approach requires not only developing guidelines and a grand design project but also coordinating various branches and levels of government, engaging residents and business, international organizations, the third sector. During the final session of the congress, participants will discuss the main ideas developed during the two days and their relevance to the realities of Moscow and other Russian cities and regions.
