Based on research from Europe and the United States, 10 guiding principles covering urban design solutions, as well as the social and organizational features necessary to develop a healthy city have been developed for Tønsberg municipality in collaboration with CITITEK. The report can be a useful tool for any government, municipality, organization or business that desires to build healthy, happy and inclusive cities and communities. For each of the principles in the report, there is an animated video, providing a fun and interesting way of communicating the results to a broader audience.
