Seize the opportunity to be a new generation place-maker This week saw the launch of Public Practice, a social enterprise aiming to recruit a new generation of place-making planners for local authorities, beginning with London and the South East. Developed through the Mayor of London’s ‘Good Growth by Design’ programme it counts the Mayor, the Local Government Association and developers British Land, Berkeley Group and housing association Peabody among its founding partners. Chief executive and moving force, Finn Williams, explains that the scheme aims to place outstanding candidates from architecture, planning and urban design, offering them an alternative career path focused on shaping places for the public good. Recruitment of the first cohort of 16 ‘Associates’ got under way this week. Williams himself started out as an architect at the Office of Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) before making the switch to planning, first at Croydon Council and then the Greater London Authority.

Pourquoi les petites filles portent du rose et les garçons du bleu Jupe blanche, chapeau à plume, cheveux frôlant les épaules... et pourtant, c'est bien Franklin Delano Roosevelt, le 32e président des Etats-Unis, que l'on voit sur cette photo d'enfance postée par Themarysue. Etonnant? Pas vraiment. Jo B. Jo B. En effet, pendant des siècles, les enfants ont porté de délicates robes blanches jusqu'à l'âge de 6 ans. Ce n'est pourtant qu'au début du XXe qu'ils sont associés aux genres, et cette association s'affirme vers les années 1940. publicité Devenez fan sur , suivez-nous sur WHO European Healthy Cities Network The WHO European Healthy Cities Network consists of cities around the WHO European Region that are committed to health and sustainable development: nearly 100 cities and towns from 30 countries. They are also linked through national, regional, metropolitan and thematic Healthy Cities networks. A city joins the WHO European Healthy Cities Network based on criteria that are renewed every five years. Each five-year phase focuses on core priority themes and is launched with a political declaration and a set of strategic goals. The overarching goal of the current Phase VI (2014–2018) is implementing Health 2020 at the local level. The following two strategic goals of Health 2020 provide the overarching umbrella of Phase VI: improving health for all and reducing health inequities; and improving leadership and participatory governance for health. Phase VI is supported by Health 2020. Healthy Cities is a global movement, with networks established in all six WHO regions.

FPH :: Home Les dix stratégies de manipulation de masses | BD, zen, social Le linguiste nord-américain Noam Chomsky a élaboré une liste des « Dix Stratégies de Manipulation » à travers les média. Nous la reproduisons ici. Elle détaille l’éventail, depuis la stratégie de la distraction, en passant par la stratégie de la dégradation jusqu’à maintenir le public dans l’ignorance et la médiocrité. 1/ La stratégie de la distraction Élément primordial du contrôle social, la stratégie de la diversion consiste à détourner l’attention du public des problèmes importants et des mutations décidées par les élites politiques et économiques, grâce à un déluge continuel de distractions et d’informations insignifiantes. 2/ Créer des problèmes, puis offrir des solutions Cette méthode est aussi appelée « problème-réaction-solution ». 3/ La stratégie de la dégradation Pour faire accepter une mesure inacceptable, il suffit de l’appliquer progressivement, en « dégradé », sur une durée de 10 ans. 4/ La stratégie du différé 5/ S’adresser au public comme à des enfants en bas-âge

Factoring long-term health impacts into urban development This ambitious project will quantify current and future health costs and benefits of urban environments, helping to make health impacts a priority in urban development planning. Conduct a literature survey to quantify the health costs and benefits of different aspects of urban environments. Use this economic information to gain a better understanding of how to create healthy urban environments. By 2050 the planet will need to support nine billion people, most of whom will be living in urban areas. However, the relationship between the built urban environment and health is complex. The three-year project, led by the University of West England’s WHO Centre for Health Urban Environments, will aim to demonstrate to decision makers the hidden costs to society of poor-quality urban development. “It’s so very very complex, but it’s so important to try and understand this,” said Daniel Black, director of urban planning consultancy db+a, a principal collaborator on the project.
