Master Class The Healthy City
Health and care play an inmportant part in urban development, also in the context of the urban economy and employment. The force field in which governments and other actors have to operate is in full transition. The national government is delegating care tasks to municipalities. The consolidating health economy is passing into the hands of a few large parties that add little local value. And more and more studies confirm the relationship between income and education on the one hand, and health and life expectancy on the other. That means that healthy policy is social policy. The focus shifts from cure to care and new coalitions of actors are formed. How can local and regional governments develop policy for a healthy and inclusive city?
These and other questions are central at the Master Class The Healthy City that the IABR and Architectuur Locaal organize for public administrators and that takes place on March 16 en 17 in Brussels.

This Master Class builds on the results of the IABR–2016–Project Atelier Utrecht.

Research by design as a tool for sustainable development
Because of the financial and economic crisis, shifting societal priorities, ongoing technological developments and the rapidly changing roles of the government, Municipalities and Provinces in the Netherlands are faced with ever more complex urban design challenges.
On all levels of government, there is a need for new visions and innovative approaches to spatial development, while different and ever shifting alliances strive to bring their plans and ideas into play. In order to stimulate capacity building and explore integrative and sustainable development perspectives, the IABR has commissioned Architectuur Lokaal to organize three Master Classes for local and provincial administrators and governors.
