Ecological: The power of green cities to shape the future
Day 3: Healing Cities, October 7, 2010
How can health practitioners, city planners and sustainability professionals work together to build and regenerate communities that could be called “healing cities”?
Health care practitioners at an urban planning event? Yes. Whole health integration– physical, intellectual, mental, emotional, spiritual – at the top of the planning agenda? Yes, and it’s about time.
The conference is directed to practitioners, professionals, advocates and leaders in a variety of fields who are unified by their desire to advance the state of practice in urban sustainability.
Gaining Ground has emerged as the leading conference for city builders on sustainability, innovation and the future, and this year, we are dedicating an entire day to the emerging frameworks and insights into how city planners and health care workers can collaborate to make ourselves and our cities healthier – a day titled “Healing Cities.”
This third day of the conference will create links between developers, urban planners, health practitioners and administrators. Help shape this emerging, multidisciplinary field of practice, build new collaborations and share your ideas with thought leaders and creative researchers.
