Publisher Description

This
book describes the coming about and first results of the AiREAS "healthy
city" cooperative in the city of Eindhoven and Province of North Brabant
in the Netherlands. AiREAS is an initiative focused on the multidisciplinary
co-creation of healthy cities using the core human value of human health and
air quality as guiding principle for profound regional innovation. The unique
group process that followed uses the complexity of the city of Eindhoven as
living lab. It is an anthropology based initiative that invites directly to the
same table of core innovative responsibility the local government, innovative
business partners, scientific insights and reseach, and civilian participation.
The first phase is described here in which the consortium decided to want to
make the invisible of air pollution and human exposure visible for the integral
innovative participation of all city's core pillars (policy, education,
infrastructure, culture and entrepreneurship). The experience is unique in the
world and proceding now with more phases in Eindhoven and the role out of the
same working format in other cities. This Brief is made available to inspire
the world to address together the most complex issues of our current era:
pollution, climate and core human values.
