Horizon Talk: Tackling climate change, and much more, through urban design

Dr Audrey de Nazelle
Wednesday 6th May 5.00pm

Strategies are clearly needed to mitigate and adapt to climate change but the way we address this problem matters. Dr Audrey de Nazelle will present evidence on the benefits and co-benefits of different types of urban policies that tackle climate change while simultaneously addressing some of our greatest urban health challenges such as air pollution. Audrey will make the case for holistic approaches to urban policy decision making through urban planning and design strategies that help create a thriving, healthy, equal, creative, sustainable and resilient society.

Dr Audrey de Nazelle is a Senior Lecturer at the Centre for Environmental Policy, Imperial College London. Her work, at the intersection of environmental sciences, health behaviour, transportation, and urban planning, aims at guiding decision makers towards health-promoting built environments and policies. Much of her research has been on the relationships between active travel and air pollution (exposures, health risks and benefits, and societal engagement). Dr de Nazelle holds a PhD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in Environmental Sciences, and a Maîtrise in Mathematics from the University of Paris VI Pierre et Marie Curie.
