Urban Health Transdisciplinary Forum

Review of the Urban Health Transdisciplinary Forum

The Urban Health Transdisciplinary Forum took place on Feb. 15, 2023, at the Hochschule für Gesundheit in Bochum, Germany. With 18 speakers from 5 countries, 13 sessions and 67 participants, it was a day full of exciting inputs, exchanges and enriching conversations.

The topics were "Urban Green", "Monitoring", "Fair Opportunities and Environmental Justice", "Climate Adaptation", "Urban Mental Health" and "Homelessness". Two to three sessions were offered on each topic area from various presenters. This allowed participants to experience a wide variety of real-world examples. As there was a session in the morning as well as in the afternoon, all participants could visit two topics they were interested in.

During the week, the presenters were able to explore the Ruhr Area for themselves and visit special features such as the Mining Museum and the Gasometer in Oberhausen.


Special thanks to all who enriched this day with their contributions and suggestions. Also to be mentioned those who had a further travel distance and yet were able to share their expertise.

Podcast episodes from Urban Health Transdisciplinary Forum

As part of the forum, we were able to interview the experts on their topics in the form of three podcast episodes. The topics are "Mapping Rooftop Farming in Nepal", "A Study of Homelessness and Urban Health in Pakistan" and "Young People´s Expression through Photography in Chile". These can be found below. 

Zu sehen sind die Gäste Dr. Rehana Sherestha von der University of Bremen, Germany, Narayan Thapa vom International Centre of Integrated Mountain Research, Nepal und die Moderatorin Johanna Rolf von der HS Gesundheit, Bochum.
