Healthy Urban Living & Ageing in place: Physical Activity, Built Environment & Knowledge Exchange in Brazilian Cities (HULAP)

 

HULAP is a three-year research project that was established in 2016 that aims to enhance the understanding of the influence of the built environment on physical activity of older adults in both the United Kingdom (Belfast) and Brazil (Curitiba).  

 

It draws together an international, multi-disciplinary team of researchers drawn from public health, geography, planning and management, as well as a range of key stakeholders that are central to promoting this policy agenda in Brazil, the UK and internationally.

 

The implementation of this project will not only enable the research team to develop the evidence base relating to the improvement of physical activity and well-being of older adults in both cities but it will also advance policy tools with the overall aim of assisting active ageing in place.
