Urban running tracks (Urbana löpspår)
Project leader: Mattias Qviström, Institution för Stad och Land, SLU Uppsala
Partners: Halmstad Municipality, the city of Helsingborg, Lund Municipality, the city of Malmö
Financer: Movium Partnerskap
Time period: 2017-2019
The project is a collaboration with four municipalities in the south of Sweden and offers a possibility for researchers and practicians to exchange knowledge and learn from each other. Within the project we investigate how we can plan for urban running tracks, with a special focus on accessibility. The point of departure is a public health perspective on urban planning where we seek a deeper understanding for how planning and design of the physical environment can affect the conditions for a good health. We aim to contribute with knowledge in how we can plan for an active city with an increased physical, social and mental well-being.
