CIHT Cymru Wales is delighted to host this webinar with Aberystwyth University and Public Health Wales to introduce THINK: Transport and Health Integrated Research Network. THINK has been created to bring together people working in transport and health from policy, practice and academia, developing skills, experience and knowledge, generating new practice-orientated research and getting research into practice.
We will introduce the different themes that THINK focuses on in transport and health and some of the methods we are using to develop a community of practice in transport and health involving various stakeholders, which the audience are welcome to join. We will present three case study projects of research and policy development the core THINK team is involved in to highlight the work we’re involved in and to give an insight into transport and health.
Transport planners, engineers and urban designers, third sector – policy and research, health professionals. Interests in making changes to built environment, urban design, transport infrastructure and services to have a positive impact on public (and individual) health and wellbeing.
