URGENT CHALLENGE TO ALL CITIES!

We rejoice that many cities are becoming more healthy, with great improvements in walkability, bikeability, public transit, and access to community, nature and healthy food. We will hear from the best models around the world.


The URGENT CHALLENGE that we all face is that these goals are not reaching population groups most in need. Poor neighborhoods suffer the greatest health problems. We will hear from cities tackling these problems head on with outstanding programs for equitable, healthy neighborhoods. Join us in Portland to share solutions!

JOIN THIS CONFERENCE TO HELP SOLVE THIS CRISIS

SPECIAL AWARDEE:

Mayor Rui Moreira, Porto, Portugal will receive the 2019 IMCL Joseph P. Riley Award and will tell us about his work in Making Porto a Healthy City for All, a magnificent program that includes :

Neighborhood revitalization through transformation of Matadouro, the historic slaughterhouse in a poor neighborhood, into a vibrant neighborhood center, for culture, the arts, small business, artists’ studios, and a museum. Parque Oriental reclaims an abandoned stream valley beside some of Porto’s poorest neighborhoods, transforming if from a steep, inaccessible channel for rainwater runoff into a linear park for bikers, joggers, recreation, and relaxation.

Historic renovation: public housing

Reclamation of buildings in the most historic center of the city, saving them from becoming tourist accommodations and renovating them as housing for some of Porto’s poorest residents.

DISCUSSION AND DIALOGUE

Ample opportunities for exchange of experience and expertise between speakers and participants at Discussion sessions following all panels.
