Health, environment and the future of cities

In 2016, CSaP hosted a Policy Workshop to explore what the health and environment sectors have to learn from one another. The workshop considered the lessons of history and examples of past successes, and concluded by identifying practical suggestions for future collaboration to cut across institutional boundaries.

Strategic challenges for the health system

The strategic challenges for the economic sustainability of the NHS was the topic of conversation at a recent CSaP Policy Fellow event held in the Department of Health

“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.”
