Set in the human-environment interaction space, this book applies new theoretical insights to health in urban environments. It stems from increasing interest in the creation of healthy settings and liveable cities, which aim to improve equity and sustainability in urban environments, but do so with theoretically simplistic and unimaginative models. Conceptually and practically, the book is situated at the intersection of human geography, health promotion and design of urban environments. Drawing on the work of Nigel Thrift, Donna Haraway, Jane Bennett, Sarah Whatmore, Elizabeth Shove and Bruno Latour among others it presents a synthesis of these authors' theoretical contributions and what they can offer to understanding the health outcomes and impacts, interactions and encounters of urban environments. In particular the book turns its attention to socio-ecological models of health and expands and reframes these use ideas from more-than-human theory. As a practical contribution, it then directs these ideas towards reinvigorating health promotion and urban design. The book will be of interest to researchers in health sociology and human geography as well as professionals and policymakers in public health, health promotion, social planning and urban design.
