The ‘good city’ evokes the good life; however, urban citizens often live with ill health, pollution, poor living conditions, fear, anxiety, isolation, crime and helplessness; how can urban life maintain and repair human wellbeing and mental health rather than the opposite? What anticipatory intelligence, social inclusion, political process and health provision should the good city have? What social, political, economic, and cultural values are embedded in urban policy making?

The nine new research projects supported under this programme bring together novel, interdisciplinary ideas from across the humanities and social sciences in collaboration with the natural, medical and engineering sciences to propose solutions to international challenges past, present and future.

This programme is funded by the UK’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
