12. Vital Cities make you active

Type of project: Guide and project outcomes Organization: URBACT programme http://urbact.eu/

Description

This Vital Cities report presents recent research and practices exploring the relationship between built environments and physical activity, which impacts on social cohesion and healthy living. It mostly concentrates on the European level, but it also refers to a few globally relevant examples. The Vital Cities report shows how to combat social exclusion through the redesign of public spaces in deprived residential areas by using the power and common language of sport through community and IT-based urban sport actions and innovative physical equipment.
