Health, environment and the future of cities

A case study by Pauline Reeves, Deputy Director Sustainable Travel and Equalities, Department for Transport

Pauline's Fellowship led to a connection with the Centre for Diet and Activity Research, which had a clear impact on cycling policy development in the Department for Transport.

“The CSaP workshop was a fascinating way to compare and contrast how social movements have been understood over time and across sectors. It gave us a very useful set of insights – from both academics and practitioners – that helped to shape our report 'Health as a Social Movement: the power of people in movements'. The Nesta report was launched at the Royal Society of Arts in September 2016 as part of an NHS England programme on social movements in health.”
