New UN initiative and resources on healthy cities

The first ever Urban Thinkers Campus (UTC) on Health and Well-being  was coordinated in Malaysia by the United Nations University’s International Institute for Global Health in January of 2016. The UTC is an initiative of UN-Habitat, organized under the aegis of the World Urban Campaign (WUC) in the context of the 3rd United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (Habitat III ) in 2016. It was a global event to re-imagine sustainable urban development in the interest of human health and environmental well-being, and brought together leading thinkers on urban health. More information about the event is available at http://www.thriveurban.info/. Scroll down to the ‘Documents & News’ section where you’ll find helpful resources such as the Kuching Statement on Healthy, Just and Sustainable Urban Development and a set of  Principles for Healthy and Sustainable Places.
