Abstract
This forward-looking resource recasts the concept of healthy cities as not only a safe, pleasant, and green built environment, but also one that creates and sustains health by addressing social, economic, and political conditions. It describes collaborations between city planning and public health creating a contemporary concept of urban governance?a democratically-informed process that embraces values like equity. Models, critiques, and global examples illustrate institutional change, community input, targeted assessment, and other means of addressing longstanding sources of urban health challenges. In these ambitious pages, healthy cities are rooted firmly in the worldwide movement toward balanced and sustainable urbanization, developed not to disguise or displace entrenched health and social problems, but to encourage and foster solutions. Included in the coverage: Towards healthy urban governance in the century of the city

Abstract
The Richmond Community Wellness Strategy is one of four inter-related strategies that serve to achieve a Council-endorsed initiative: the Richmond Community of Excellence for Sport and Wellness. It outlines an integrated holistic, collaborative wellness strategy for Richmond; one which builds on our strengths, and identifies and addresses the gaps. The strategy was created in cooperation with three local public agencies: the City of Richmond, the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority and the Richmond School District. The strategy falls under the jurisdiction of all agencies and groups.
