Workshop: Science to Policy Consultation. Reducing the Urban Burden of Disease in Brussels through Environmental Policies

Date: 11 December, 2023. Location: Brussels

Published On: 18/01/2024Categories: Workshops

The city of Brussels has been chosen as one of 10 cities, for which detailed health cost and benefits assessments will be developed, and UBBPolicy is now seeking decision-makers, administrators and stakeholders expertise input for the research scenarios and results.

Added value for Brussels decision-makers and administration in participating

  • Exclusive access to existing and new data showcasing health benefits of various urban environmental, and transport policies, which can be used in communication with the public
  • Health economic cost and benefits analysis which can be used for designing and implementing policies
  • Opportunity to give direction to researchers on which data is most needed for current and future policy-making

During the workshop, we will explore possible scenarios on health and well-being relevant for either the preparation or assessment of Brussels current and prospective policies and strategies (e.g climate neutrality by 2030, low emission zone, GoodMove plan, and others). For example: GoodMove plan – health impact assessment of xx% increase of cyclists/cycling infrastructure or any other measure.

DATE: 11 December 2023 from 9:00 AM to 14:00 PM (CET).
VENUE: Mundo Madou, Avenue des Arts 7/8, 1210 Brussels, Belgium.
