World Health Organization Research

Read our report to the World Health Organization and World Bank here.

The WHO's initiative on cities for better health and cities for an ageing population have been in operation for decades - our goal is to apply the research to real world development projects.

It is our belief that many of the key principles: mixed-use, vertical-density, and transit-oriented development align readily with our other expertise: sustainable cities and EcoCities.

Drawing upon research and evidence-based decision making, we help ensure actual health, liveability, and sustainability outcomes for development projects.


Global Recognition

Our work has been presented in the International Conference on Urban Health, World EcoCities Summit, and a number of national and international conferences.

National and international awards have been received from: The Health Council of Canada, European Union, University of Cincinnati, and Illinois Institute of Technology, and Germany DAAD.


How we can collaborate.

We specialize in design and planning of multi-unit buildings for health, environment, and social equity outcomes. Our work in supporting the development of senior homes and senior communities stems from our dedication to Age-Friendly Cities research.

Education, seminars, facilitated workshops is our fourth specialty, as we strive towards enhancing human communication and building community.
