Our vision: Healthy, equitable and sustainable cities inclusive of all

Our mission: To conduct rigorous and innovative research to produce knowledge to promote social and health equity among young people so that they can become engaged and resilient citizens, thus supporting the social, environmental and economic sustainability of cities and communities.

Our approaches and themes of interest:
The chair's work lies at the intersection of health promotion, social epidemiology and geography. Combining quantitative methods and qualitative approaches, we aim to generate conceptual, methodological, empirical and intervention-related knowledge concerning two distinct but synergistic fields: the creation of healthy, equitable and sustainable cities and settings, and the health of young people, especially those who are marginalized because of, for example, their socio-economic status, gender, ethno-cultural background, immigrant status. etc.
