A key focus for the event in 2019 will be emerging new policy around better integrated and collaborative planning, coming forward in the National Planning Policy Framework, the Department for Transport’s updated appraisal guidance, the National Infrastructure Assessment and 'Prevention is better than cure', the new public health vision from Matt Hancock, Secretary of State for Health and Social Care. Hancock specifically mentions the need to 'coordinate transport, housing, education, the workplace and the environment in the grand enterprise to improve our nation’s health'. His key coordination message also highlights the evidence collected in a variety of recent reports that underlines the worrying lack of sustainable and active transport options being integrated into new housing developments. 
 
Public Health England's Chief Executive Duncan Selbie calls the new vision 'a transformative moment for public health' and encourages everyone to work together for real change.

There is an urgent need to get people moving, according to research by the World Health Organisation (WHO) which warns that a quarter of the global population, and more in wealthy countries, are becoming less and less active, damaging their physical and mental health. 

The UK cost of obesity-related illness is likely to rise to £24bn per year by 2025.  NHS chief executive Simon Stevens has already warned that obesity threatens to bankrupt the health service. UK air pollution causes 40,000 early deaths per year, with 70% of that pollution coming from road traffic, in particular diesel fumes.  

There has never been a greater need for transport and public health teams to collaborate on practical plans for long-term improvement in sustainable travel, health and wellbeing. ​

 

There is a now an urgent 'business need' for local authorities to deliver high quality sustainable transport measures that enable healthier lifelstyles and demonstrate cost-effective good practice

This event is the place to learn from local authorities, specialist consultants, stakeholders and change-makers who are delivering successful public health and sustainable transport initiatives, and to pick up new ideas, inspiration and intelligence to take home and deliver in your own context.
