Englische Projektbeschreibung
Urbanization is a global phenomenon and poses pressing health challenges as urban dwellers
carry a high risk for mental ill-health. Social stress due to built or population density might play
a major role here, yet interactions with other environmental and health risk factors are still
poorly understood. At the same time infrastructural density is also an advantage as it offers
better access to urban resources. Furthermore, stressors and positively valenced urban factors
are unequally distributed between different socioeconomic, ethnic, and migrant groups; as
well as within cities and between global regions.
The Research Platform Neurourbanism (RPN) aims to explore the psychological, neuro
cognitive, social and environmental factors that moderate between urban density and mental
health of city dwellers. In four trans- and interdisciplinary work packages (WP) we will (a)
reorganize the current state of knowledge into an interdisciplinary approach and (b) co-create
new knowledge by systematically integrating transdisciplinary perspectives into the research
process. Our focus will be on two risk groups: young adults (< 35 yrs) and individuals from
ethnic minorities or with migration backgrounds.
