Belfast Healthy Cities Visit CCG

Belfast Healthy Cities Visit CCGConnswater Community Greenway recently hosted site visits for the Belfast Healthy Cities Healthy Environments: Healthy Lives Training Programme. 

The programme aims to:

  • strengthen understanding of the concept of healthy urban planning and how the built environment can improve health and health equity
  • provide practical experience and innovative ideas, and
  • offer an opportunity to explore how health and health equity can be integrated into all local policies

CCG provided site visits on Day 1: Introduction to health, planning and sustainable development and Day 3: Regeneration, urban design and liveability. 

Attendees had the opportunity to walk part of the Greenway to familiarise themselves with the area and also to envisage the benefits the Connswater Community Greenway will bring to East Belfast in terms of peoples’ health and well being. 

The visits both ended with a presentation on the health benefits of the CCG at the project office.
