Invited keynote at UBDPolicy workshop

October 24, 2023

The Urban Burden of Disease Policy workshop on Cities, form, environmental exposures and health impacts takes place on 24 and 25 October 2023, in Sitges, Spain ( https://ubdpolicy.eu/workshop-on-cities-form-environmental-exposures-and-health-impacts/ ). As the world becomes increasingly urbanized, there is growing understanding of the need to transition to healthy and sustainable cities. Cities occur in many forms and sizes which has climate, environmental and health implications. Recently a number of papers have been published examining the relationship between aspects such city form and size, climate, environmental and health impacts using databases with hundreds or thousands of cities. The workshop focuses on the complex interplay between the urban environment and health and brings together researchers that work on these issues with large data sets.

Our professor Hannes Taubenböck was invited to give a keynote presentation. He contributed a presentation titled “Urban form – Analysis from space”. In his talk, he introduced examples how humans shape our urban environments, which logics, motivations and processes drive these various developments, which morphologic types of cities exist across the globe, and what different urban forms mean for land consumption. The presentation was related to the following works:  https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0169204623000300 ; https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0264275120301347 ; https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/9553084/
