GLA explores links between city design and fitness

The Greater London Authority is challenging architects and planners to design spaces that promote people’s health and fitness.

City Hall will host the ‘Fit Cities – Fit World’ conference this week, which will examine the links between city design and fitness, health and activity.

Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: “London is being transformed, with inviting public spaces to relax in, new bike routes to entice cyclists, plots of land to grow food in and facilities to boost sports participation.

“We’ve got designs on making London one of the fittest cities in the world and this event is a great opportunity to share our expertise and learn from other cities.”
