How can we improve the provision of high quality care?     Join the Quality & Safety Community

C3 Collaborating for Health invites you to attend our International Breakfast Seminar, Health and active travel, given by Peter McCue, executive officer at the New South Wales Premier’s Council for Active Living in Australia. The seminar will take place on Tuesday 12 November at The House of St Barnabas, London.

Active travel – walking and cycling – is a great way to bolster physical activity levels in an increasingly sedentary world. However, when it comes to designing transport systems, active travel is too often sidelined – with long-term repercussions for health. Peter McCue will be talking on how to make the case for collaboration between health, the built environment and transport, highlighting evidence on the impact that changes in modes of travel can have on health, and the benefits for health, the environment and the economy that cross-cut these different sectors.

Peter is executive officer at the New South Wales Premier’s Council for Active Living in Australia – an organisation that has had significant successes, including establishing a walking target for the State, the inclusion of health considerations in transport infrastructure cost-benefit frameworks, and incorporating a health objective in the draft NSW Planning Act.

The seminar will be held at The House of St Barnabas, 1 Greek Street, London, W1D 4NQ, on Tuesday 12 November 2013, from 8.30am – 10.00am. Breakfast is available from 8.00am. I very much hope that you will join us.
