Health as a Driver for Metropolitan Development – Expert Group 2021

25 March - 2021

13:00-15:00 CET, Online

Invitation to join the first Expert Group meeting of Health as a Driver for Metropolitan Development

New METREX Expert Group established to explore the links between health and metropolitan development.

In this unprecedented era of a worldwide Pandemic, increasing urbanization, and in the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Paris Agreement, the Urban Agenda, the Leipzig charter, and other global developments, we have reached a critical point in understanding that metropolitan areas can be the source of solutions to, rather than the cause of, the challenges that our world is facing today.

Following our kick-off meeting on Health as Driver for Metropolitan Development, which took place at end of last year, we have developed an outline two-year Expert Group programme. This programme is to be discussed in the first Expert Group meeting, for which we hereby would like to invite you!

During this two-year period, the Expert Group will discover, discuss and develop practical knowledge on Health in all Policies, and how it fits in the work of developing the Metropolis.

All METREX Members are invited to join this new Expert Group. Please join the meeting on 25 March to find out more and help shape the group’s objectives.
