Talks and seminars

At this meeting we will: 

1. Discuss the findings from our workshop in September – should this be the basis for a city wide vision for Social Prescribing? Can we, as a group, agree some broad principles? Is the VCSE best placed to start that conversation?

2. Mapping. Voscur will undertake a survey that will get more into the detail of what VCSE activity actually is – surgeries connected with, what really are those connections in terms of referrals? Exactly what sort of SP are VCSE organisations practicing? What evaluation tools are used?

Do the citizens of future cities need to be more engaged, not just in their own health but  also in the design, development and shaping of the health and other systems that they rely on? Do current structures and approaches to leadership meet this challenge? Do cities need to be led differently in the future to encourage engagement? Speakers include: Debbie Sorkin (The Leadership Centre); Simon Denegri (NIHR Involve); Morgan Daly (Healthwatch BANES and Somerset); Martin Gregg (South Gloucestershire CCG); and Hildegard Dumper (People in Health West of England).

The impact of poor mental health is considerable.

How important is the built and other created environment to our health?  What tools are available to us to understand the impact that good or poor urban design and planning can have on our health, and how we get better at creating places that support rather than undermine health? What’s the likely impact of devolution for cities and healthy places? Speakers include: Marcus Grant (WHO), Jane Powell (UWE) and David Walker (Guardian; writer and journalist).

How can we tell if a place is healthy?  What information do we use to make this judgment, and should we be thinking very differently about how we assess or measure health?  If so, what implications does this have for policy in the cities of the future? Speakers include: Liz Zeidler (Happy City); Joe Irvin (Living Streets); and Sarah Purdy (University of Bristol).

As city populations age there’s a need to consider the specific needs of older people in urban areas. This is a great opportunity: creating age-friendly cities means not just adapting places to deal with problems but encouraging all to take full advantage of city life and living. Bristol aims to be an age-friendly city, but what does this really mean? What can be learned from other cities?
