Copenhagen Consensus of Mayors. Healthier and happier cities for all (2018)






A transformative approach for safe, inclusive, sustainable and resilient societies

Healthy Cities foster health and well-being through governance, empowerment and participation, creating urban places for equity and community prosperity, and investing in people for a peaceful planet.

Healthy Cities lead by example, tackling inequalities and promoting governance and leadership for health and well-being through innovation, knowledge sharing and city health diplomacy.

Healthy Cities act as leaders and partners in tackling our common global public health challenges, including noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), communicable diseases, environmental challenges, health inequalities, antimicrobial resistance, health emergencies and the pursuit of universal health coverage.
