The population of Utrecht is considered one of the healthiest in the Netherlands. However, within the city there are stark contrasts. In addition, and strictly within its current city limits, Utrecht expects to grow from 330,000 to 400,000 inhabitants by 2030. IABR–Atelier Utrecht, set up by the IABR and the Municipality of Utrecht, has identified critical success factors for a healthy an socially inclusive city. What happens if, instead of concentrating on the institutions that take care of the city’s sick and elderly, we redirect our focus to how the city, by promoting public and semi-public facilities, can contribute to the (future) health of its inhabitants? Hetty Linden, Public Health Director at the Municipality of Utrecht and Joachim Declerck, lead designer of the IABR–Atelier Utrecht, will reflect on the research and design results of the Atelier and share their lessons learned.
