The WELL City Advisory will “explore ways to support local governments worldwide in demonstrating leadership on advancing health and well-being across their buildings, organisations and communities.
“IWBI is working to meet cities where they are. The WELL City Advisory is a diverse group of experts who understand the design, function and operations of municipalities, big and small, local and global,” said Rachel Hodgdon, President and CEO, IWBI, in an April 2022 news release.
“The Advisory will help develop a framework, tools and coaching to allow cities to weave human health, equity and well-being into their DNA. We’re grateful to this tremendous group of leaders for joining with us today at such a critical moment to reimagine the future of cities and the significant role they play in enhancing, improving and protecting human health.”
Working in partnership with the National League of Cities (NLC) and informed by the new advisory, IWBI will work to design and shape strategies to encourage cities to demonstrate leadership and address health, safety, resilience and equity challenges, while promoting well-being.
Malcolm has volunteered his services to the Advisory, whose members bring deep expertise across public health, sustainability, engineering, design, architecture, policy and urban planning.
