Welcome

Founded in 1995, Environmental Stewardship for Health is able to bring a wealth of experience and an extensive knowledge-base to bear in supporting population health through the urban built environment.

Of particular focus is the neighbourhood; acknowledging the cumulative impact of urban activities on human health and resources both across city-regions and globally. We have found that to be successful projects need to bring people together; developers, practitioners, communities, and others involved with place-making.

The consultancy is led by Marcus Grant, who has been an expert advisor to the World Health Organisation’s European Healthy City Network for over 15 years. In additional to consultancy, Marcus is available for keynotes, policy workshops and scholarly seminars.

Joining-up strategic policy, with communities; his trans-disciplinary methods support better communication in all directions. Through creating shared ‘learning zones’, joint fact-finding and collaboration, he helps stakeholders design the tools they need for better outcomes for health and sustainability.
