The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Walkability in China

751 views

Published on

China is experiencing unprecedented rates of urbanization that has augmented economic growth, but also increased obesity, pollution, and chronic diseases that pose serious public health, environmental, and economic challenges. Unsustainable development patterns contribute to these consequences. How can we best mitigate the negative impacts of such rapid urbanization? In the West, the built environment is known to impact walkability and “health.” How is China’s built environment impacting walkability? What is its current “State of Place?” This presentation will share preliminary findings from my Fulbright work on walkability in Shanghai and explore best practices for developing sustainable and healthy places.
