The Global Centre on Healthcare and Urbanisation (GCHU) at Kellogg College seeks to make urban centres environmentally, economically, and socially sustainable, and to provide an environment that supports and sustains health and wellbeing.
Our interdisciplinary approach embraces sustainable urban development and evidence-based healthcare to undertake research, education and foster collaboration in these disciplines.
A research team from the GCHU and Primary Care has been awarded funding from the University’s OPEN Network to explore a new community engagement method in Oxford, called “Listening Exchanges”. The aim of the Listening Exchanges approach is to bring together citizens with different views on specific policy approaches, to encourage mutual understanding, reduce polarisation and support community cohesion and resilience.
In this seminar, we ask how can cars, public transport, and active transport work together? Do current transport policies reduce, or increase inequalities in cities? We expect a lively debate from a range of perspectives about the options facing cities today, including transport poverty, healthy urbanism, and climate change.
