#CitiesArelistening // Access to public space: a key element for the mental health

This exchange aims to highlight key questions relating public space to health, such as: accessibility, flexibility, design, management and maintenance, connectivity and equitable distribution and more importantly as cities start to emerge from lock-down,we need to re-build confidence about being out in public spaces, and enhance the well-being benefits.

Public spaces are generators of livelihoods in cities, what role will these key structuring elements play in building city resilience after Covid-19. 

Under our #CitiesAreListening , local and regional governments and their partners will uncover transversal issues which need to be analysed through multi- sectoral lenses. The Urban Strategic Planning Committee of UCLG, together with the UN-Habitat Planning Finance and Economy Section, Metropolis, Placemaking X and various local governments will host a virtual exchange on the value of Public Space for mental and physical health in cities .
