Sustainability and Health for the City of Calgary: A Discussion of Global Health Trends and Local Impacts

by Derek Cook

Last November, imagineCalgary called for a series of studies to document how the city could be affected by large-scale trends in the key areas like;
- Climate Change
- Energy
- Demographics
- Health Issues

CPRN's Family Network was contracted to prepare papers elaborating on the last two.

In Sustainability and Health, Derek Cook, a Calgary social planner, argues that health is "the integrative component linking social, economic and environmental systems" and that advances in health status are an essential contributor to sustainability.
