Public health issues have been exacerbated after the Covid-19 pandemic as citizens became more aware about these aspects. Consequently, there will be a shift on city planning, prioritizing these issues; air quality, among them. This session will answer the question of what effects can poor air quality have on citizens?, and will present the Barcelona’s Superblocks and urban design in favour of public health, and its effects on the air we breathe, planning and mobility. – SCEWC Digital Channel
