“Urban Planning”: 59 Of The Best And Worst Examples Of Built Environment Shared In This Online Group

According to the World Health Organization, the environment where we live determines almost 24% of our health status. No wonder adults living in and children growing up in urban settings are increasingly exposed to high levels of air and noise pollution, tend to have less contact with nature, have poorer nutrition and even lack physical activity.

Luckily, good urban planning can not only prevent these risks caused by urbanization but even improve our quality of life. Smart urban planning can make busy public areas natural and peaceful spaces capable of reducing stress, promoting sustainability and a sense of well-being.
