Health promoting urban environment PLAN-H

Project Details


PLAN-H research seeks clarity to the highly complex health promotive processes of varying contexts and produces usable knowledge for the development of health promoting urban environment. PLAN-H develops a new research strategy that combines a place-based approach that anchors research findings to specific planning solutions with socially and individually sensitive study of human habitual behavior, varying lifestyles of urban tribes, social equality concerns and the holistic health outcomes. PLAN-H research produces socially and locationally sensitive information for planners that helps to go beyond simple listings of the presence of general resources and abstract preferences of an average user. The project aims to create an understanding of how various inhabitant groups actually make use of environmental resources in their habitual behavior and how equal the accessibility of environmental resources are.
