This is a joint webinar organised by RTPI Yorkshire and Yorkshire and Humber Association of Directors of Public Health (ADPH).

The connection between planning and health and wellbeing outcomes is now well established. Green space, active travel opportunities and physical health is well understood, but the challenge of tackling health inequality requires a deeper understanding of the importance of place. In this insightful webinar, aimed at built environment and public health professionals, we will explore both the challenges and opportunities in tackling health inequality and how these professions can work together to create healthy places for all.

Confirmed speakers;

  • Michael Chang - Programme Manager - Planning and Health, Office for Health Improvement and Disparities, Department of Health and Social Care
  • Aude Bicquelet, Deputy Head of Policy and Research at RTPI, Healthy Placemaking
  • Helen Forman, Urban Design Manager, West Yorkshire Combined Authority
  • Matthew Ashton, Director of Public Health, Liverpool City Council
  • Greg Fell, Director of Public Health, Sheffield City Council

The full programme will be published shortly.
