Polis presented position paper on active travel at Healthy Cities symposium in Dresden
Healthy Cities is a global movement initiated by the World Health Organisation (WHO) with currently 30 national networks. Polis was invited to speak at the symposium following last year’s Polis Working Group meeting on health, which included a WHO contribition "Assessing Health impacts of Transport" by Francesca Racioppi. Also this year's Polis position paper on active travel and its impact on health was presented and distributed to the network.
