Thank you all who participated in Style webinar

Transdisciplinary Contribution to Health, Climate and Business Targets

Wednesday 29 April 2020 at 1012 (UTC +3)

Physical inactivity is a major social concern of late-modern lifestyles. In order to boost physical activity by increasing the share of healthy mobility (i.e. walking and cycling), joint actions across various domains are required.

This webinar brought together perspectives of sustainable mobility, health and physical activity promotion, community planning, consumer research, business model development and futures studies. We featured a panel of internationally acknowledged experts and local practitioners to discuss the obstacles and actions to support healthy mobility.

The members of the online panel were:

  • BILLIE GILES-CORTI, Professor, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia
    “Healthy liveable communities and urban futures”
  • METTE GRANBERG, Helsinki Regional Transport Authority, Finland
    “Reducing emissions and promoting health (in the Helsinki region), a perfect match”
  • MATTI HIRVONEN, Executive director of the Network of Finnish Cycling municipalities, Finland
    “Integrating cycling into daily life”
  • THIAGO HÉRICK DE SÁ, World Health Organization WHO, Switzerland
    “The role of the health sector in the creation of healthy and sustainable mobility for all”
  • TIM SCHWANEN, Professor, Director, Transport Studies Unit, University of Oxford, UK
    “Transport and sustainability”
  • JOHN THØGERSEN, Professor, Department of Management, Aarhus University, Denmark
