GCHU Public Seminar series: Can Low Traffic Neighbourhoods work for everyone?

This seminar set out to explore the benefits of low traffic neighbourhoods, as well as consider diverse local community perspectives, and ask whether they can work for everyone.

We asked four leading voices in the field to share their knowledge, research and pitch their views on the subject. This is the latest in our series of events examining key urban issues.

- Dr Rachel Lee, Policy and Research Manager, Living Streets

- Patrick Lingwood, Active Travel Lead, Oxfordshire County Council

- Lucy Saunders, Director of Healthy Streets

- Dr Scott Urban, Hertford College and Director of Oxfordshire Liveable Streets

GCHU Public Seminars

The Centre hosts a series of seminars – open to the public – throughout the year. These lively discussions bring together a panel of speakers to address contemporary, and often controversial, issues in healthcare and urbanisation.

Commission on Creating Healthy Cities

The Commission on Creating Healthy Cities is run by the Global Centre on Healthcare & Urbanisation at Kellogg College, University of Oxford; the Prince’s Foundation is an active partner in the Centre and as such will co-host the Commission. The Commission will investigate the links between urban design and the risks and effects of infectious disease outbreaks and other serious threats to health and well-being, most immediately the Covid-19 crisis.
