Issue date: 18 October 2011

ISHE's Marcus Grant ran an interprofessional workshop 'Spatial planning: setting the scene for healthy sustainable communities' at the Belfast City Sustainable Communities Conference.

Entitled "Making Global Local", the conference brought together professionals from various agencies throughout Northern Ireland, the public and experts in the fields of climate change and sustainability. They examined how climate change affects local communities and the impact it has both regionally and locally. Marcus' workshop demonstrated the importance of public health joining together with sustainable development in terms of the planning and design of the built environment.
