This book explores urban environments and their impact on resilience, livability, climate adaptation, health, and societal well-being. It provides interdisciplinary insights for fostering resilient, livable, and sustainable cities prioritizing well-being and quality of life for all residents.

The book covers various topics and discusses innovative approaches for incorporating nature into urban planning. It also examines the relationships between diet diversity, food environments, and transportation systems.

Spatial analysis of noise contour maps based on traffic speed is conducted, along with an assessment of the impact of office environments on productivity. The book explores the influence of streetscapes on anxiety, envisions future cities from a youth perspective, and identifies critical factors affecting the design and use of elevated urban spaces.

Daylighting performance in school expansions is evaluated, and the concept of a livable city is examined. Community adaptive capacity for climate-resilient development is assessed through a case study analysis. The livability of street vendors in different urban contexts is compared, and alternative perspectives on restorative environments are presented.

The book investigates the impact of urban refugees on cities and reevaluates scientific theories for human well-being-oriented built environments. It evaluates tourist satisfaction with urban railway systems and explores sport as a tool for healthy and sustainable cities.
