WHAT IS A HEALTHY SUSTAINABLE CITY?
Imagine a time, when having to go to the hospital is seen as a failure of health and social care systems. Where most of the care and support you need can be offered at workplace and at home.
Imagine a place, where the buildings support the health system and are in tune with the environment. They use almost no carbon and are integrated into the community and with nature. They are inviting for residents and are a pleasure to live and work in.
Imagine a city, where the buildings and infrastructure promote healthy lifestyle. Where we minimise, recycle and re-use waste. Where we know that business operations take the long term financial, social and environmental costs into account.
Imagine you can create that place.
This is not utopia. This is reality.

1. A territory of prevention:
urban planning, infrastructure, transportation systems, sustainable medical, educational and sports institutions, etc.
2: Healthy buildings - healthy people
which factors affect health?
3: Society of healthy sustainable city:
How will people's lives change and how to be ready for this?
A healthy environment is built in such a way that it helps to maintain the physical, mental and social well-being of people who live, work and rest in it.
In the 21st century, when the population is growing rapidly and the climate is changing, we are facing new problems in the healthcare sector. Public health today is not a unique responsibility of doctors: the well-being of the population is influenced by architects, developers, urban infrastructure designers and transport systems, landscape designers, manufacturers of materials for construction and equipping of buildings.
With such a paradigm shift new opportunities arise - the market is changing, there is a demand for leisure and work in a healthy environment that supports a modern view of the world, a healthy lifestyle that cares for people and nature. Within the framework of this forum, as a participant, you can contribute to the joint development of such a city, creating a new business vector, rather than adjusting to it.
Human health is affected by a variety of factors from water, food and air to being able to cycle to work, relieve stress during the working day and, most importantly, how much the environment itself promotes a healthy lifestyle.
Creating a healthy society begins with the understanding of how the design affects health. Given that the average resident of the megalopolis spends up to 90% of the time inside, it is a design that can play an important role in determining how healthy and productive the society is.
Today Russia is taking steps from the disease treatment to the disease prevention by creating an appropriate environment. By participating in the forum, you will become one of the pioneers in designing and implementing such innovative projects as the Center for Preventive Medicine, healthy schools and kindergartens, healthy office buildings and others. Getting involved in the process at the design stage gains you an undeniable advantage over competitors both from the point of view of expanding the market share and from the point of view of marketing and PR.
Progress is very fast and is getting only faster. In the cities of the future, not only infrastructure and buildings will be new, but also work, leisure, hobbies. Along with this, new challenges will arise.
Today already we can observe new types of disorders, such as cyber dependency - something 40 years ago no one could even imagine. According to “Atlas 100”, 57 professions will disappear by 2030, and 186 new ones will appear - an IT doctor, a bioethicist, a genetic consultant, an eco-analyst, an expert in overcoming environmental disasters, an eco-preacher, a concierge of robotics, and an agroinformatics specialist. As new professions and technologies enter our lives, new leisure, new wishes and interests of the population will come, as well as new diseases and ways of treatment.
By designing the future together, we have a unique opportunity to look at it from all sides, without missing anything, eventually providing a product that perfectly meets the requirements of the new generation.
