Creating inclusive cities: share your ideas on new work practice

If you’ve got new workplace research, projects or policies to share that can make our cities more inclusive, then the Healthy City Design International Congress 2022 wants to hear from you

Nobody doubts that cities around the world have pulled back from the brink in the aftermath of the global pandemic and are now on the road to renewal, reimagining and redesign.

There have been many lessons for urban planners, architects, policymakers, public health professionals and businesses to absorb from dealing with the coronavirus crisis – none more so than the need to make our cities more inclusive in terms of design and health.

The next frontier

Inclusivity will be the key theme of the 2022 Healthy City Design International Congress, which takes place on 10-11 October 2022 at the Royal College of Physicians in London, and online. Entitled ‘The Next Frontier: Diversity, inclusivity and opportunity for all’, the Congress will ask: how can designing for inclusion, diversity and social equity support healthier lives and a thriving urban realm?

In recognition that new work models will be an important factor in making our cities healthier and more inclusive places after the pandemic, WORKTECH Academy is once again partnering with Congress organisers Salus Global and the Royal College of Art to present new ideas, practice and research on the future of work in cities.

Academy director Jeremy Myerson is the academic chair and co-founder of the Health City Design International Congress.

Alongside sessions on sustainable development, urban design and placemaking, mobility and transport, and smart cities, a special work and workplace stream will feature contributions from around the world.

If you’d like to give a paper, share a poster or organise a workshop on work and workplace at the 2022 Health City Design International Congress, then we want to hear from you.

You have until 31 May 2022 to submit. Review the Call for Papers here and make your submission here.
