The Clever Active Cities conference focuses on intelligent urban planning that incorporates physical and social activities directly into the planning system and not as individual initiatives in the city’s space.
The conference will highlight some trends that promote or hinder physical or social activity. Subsequently, the intention is to trace the effect on the space of the modern city and to inspire with concrete examples that promote “the good life” and the opportunities therein in the course of ongoing research, development projects and practices.
Clever Active Cities focuses on a number of challenges for health and well-being in urban communities. In the face of rising urbanization and the transition to urban societies that are CO2 neutral, the city plays a key role in promoting health and well-being as well as addressing the challenge of socio-economic inequalities among urban residents, the lack of social cohesion, high occurrence of loneliness, increasing obesity, social inequality in health, physical inactivity, pandemic, and many other challenges. Cities play important roles in solving these problems and in providing urban environments that promote the health and well-being of urban dwellers.
In short, the conference seeks to bring recent experiences and responses into dialogue with research areas in the built environments, health and wellness.
