Making cities healthy is essential to urban planning today.

There is no avoiding the research proving how planning impacts our health and quality of life — and how those in turn impact the quality of our cities. At work, holistic well-being is becoming a key metric for higher-performing workplaces. Implementing wellness programs that encourage mental well-being, fitness, and outdoor access decreases sick days and boosts happiness and productivity. For the spaces in between, green spaces are on the rise, boosting the livability and health of our urban environments.
