Policy & Action

Sustainable Healthy City Network researchers are collaborating with cities, policy and non-profit organizations, and industry partners, so that the infrastructure solutions developed as a result of network research efforts are practical and can readily be put into action in cities around the world. By closely working with community, government and industry collaborators, the network is putting its findings into practice well beyond a research setting, enabling real-world impact.

The network’s focus on the role of distributed infrastructure in urban sustainability transitions, as well as the large database the network is developing through its work, will pave the way for future research endeavors in urban sustainability. The network’s outreach, training and education efforts include training of public officials on design and implementation of coupled social-infrastructural solutions.
