the healthy cities movement
The Healthy Cities Movement

Initiated by WHO in the mid-1980s as a small-scale project that aimed ‘to put health on the agenda of decision-makers in the cities of Europe’, Healthy Cities quickly fired the imagination of politicians, professionals and citizens worldwide.

It is now a global movement for public health and sustainable development with over 25 years’ experience of incubating new ideas and developing creative solutions to old and new challenges.

Its aims are to:

demographics population changes
Demographics – Population Changes
  • At aggregate level across the North, the population will continue to grow throughout the period 2011- 2036, but will also age considerably.
  • The numbers of people with Limiting Long Term Illnesses (LLTI) will rise
  • The labour force (as currently defined) will fall
  • The Old Age Support Ratio (OSR) will increase.
  • The old-age support ratio is an important indicator of the pressures that demographics pose for pension systems. It measures how many people there are of working age (16-64) relative to the number of retirement age (65+). At the moment, there are just over four people of working age for every one of pension age on average.
