The course is part of our Global Challenges in Transport Programme, which provides researchers and practitioners with the necessary knowledge, skills and expertise, supported by the latest research evidence, to address the complexity associated with making transport sustainable.
This course considers health, wellbeing and social equity across spatial scales, geographical contexts and transport modes. It specifically concentrates on the relationships between urban form and design, mobility practices, and physical and mental well-being. Particular emphasis will be placed on the potential contribution of walking, cycling and public transport services to healthy cities.
