The director of Parc de l'Alba, Pere Solà, academic director of the new Postgraduate Course in Urban Planning and Health at the UPC School
Scientific evidence clearly recognizes the influence of environmental quality on our health. The global pandemic situation has highlighted shortcomings in our cities and urban environments. It is therefore essential to integrate the health perspective in cities from a global point of view.

The new context requires transversal professionals, specialists in the integration of the various urban aspects that produce an impact on people's health: from mobility to biodiversity, including the design of public space.

It is within this framework that the UPC School, in collaboration with the University of Vic - Central University of Catalonia, presents the new postgraduate degree in Urbanism and Health: Urban Planning as a Health Tool focused on the relationships between health and urban environment with a transversal and innovative approach.

The academic director of this degree is Pere Solà, architect from the UPC (ETSAB), awarded the 1987 Spanish National Urbanism Prize and the 2020 Catalonia Urbanism Prize, and currently director of the Parc de l'Alba / Barcelona Synchrotron Park. He is accompanied by a large and multidisciplinary team formed by professors and specialists in various disciplines (architects, biologists, environmentalologists, geologists, engineers, geographers, physicists ...), including Consol Pérez, head of the Environment Department at Parc de l’Alba, as coordinator and teacher.
