Seminar | Why we need Healthy Streets

A talk hosted by New Zealand Centre for Sustainable Cities.

Lucy Saunders is a Public Health Specialist, who has developed the Healthy Streets Approach which puts people and their health at the centre of decision making, helping everyone to use cars less and to walk, cycle and use public transport more. Lucy will show how our streets influence our health and how taking the Healthy Streets Approach delivers a wide range of social and environmental benefits with examples from cities around the world, including London where Transport for London has adopted the approach as the basis of its transport strategy.


Lucy Saunders is a consultant in public health specialising in transport, public realm and planning. She developed the Healthy Streets Approach™ and the 10 Healthy Streets Indicators™ in 2011. The Healthy Streets Approach is a framework for putting human health and quality of life at the centre of decision making around transport and public realm planning and management. In 2015 she was awarded Transport Planner of the Year by the Transport Planning Society and her work has won awards from the international UITP and UK Chartered Institute for Highways and Transportation.
