Healthier Future Forum

The 16th Healthier Future Forum focused on active travel and physical activity within an urban environment. 

Active travel is an important cross-cutting issue which is relevant to policy on health improvement, air quality, sustainability and climate change, and also to how our cities develop in the 21st century.

Alasdair MacDonald, Sustrans chaired the event, which opened with an address from Maureen Watt, Minister for Public Health. A keynote address followed from John Lauder, Director, Sustrans and a presentation from Bruce Whyte, Glasgow Centre for Population Health. The latter part of the morning included pop-up presentations, round table discussion and feedback to allow the opportunity for further comment and more in-depth discussion. Duncan Booker, Glasgow City Council summed up and closed the event.
