The 2nd CHI conference was a great success. The theme for the conference was “Creating healthy places for health futures”, and the presentations examined current policy and practice in relation to public health and wellbeing in cities along with consideration of the future challenges.
This third International City Health Conference, hosted by AIDS Foundation East-West (AFEW) and the Trimbos Institute, organised by Knowledge•Action•Change, will take place over two days, at the Casa 400 Hotel, in Amsterdam, on 3rd and 4th November 2014.
The CHI conference is held in a different location each year. If your organisation is interested in hosting a future conference, please contact us. We are also now looking to add more supporters, to ensure that the venture remains inclusive, relevant and influential in the field of urban health.

Heede called them the “carbon majors.”
