Healthy Cities, EcoCities, Age-Friendly Cities are our speciality. Liveability is our passion. Design. Consultations. Community engagement. Research. Since 2008, our goal has been a better common future.
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.
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.
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.
Our mission is to create tangible benefits on the ground for the disadvantaged in our midst. While improving health, environment, and equity is central to HEALCITY, we are further dedicated to providing direct support for the younger generations. HEALCITY EDU is an on-line, open-access (tuition-free) education initiative that provides hands-on sustainability and management experience to students around the world. Together with Empire 72, HEALCITY co-funds EMBARK, an entrepreneurial start-up award and youth training venture, as well as the ARX COLLECTIVE, an experimental literature portal amplifying unheard voices through uncensored fiction in global justice, sustainability, and the human condition. All our funding, awards, and internship opportunities are listed in HEALCITY NOW, an updated on-line portal outlining our most recent investments for the future.
Our global work encompasses design consultations, research, policy analysis, seminars, fieldwork, and partnership building.
