Health • Climate • Cities

We know the challenge: More people, living in cities, facing more extreme weather, from droughts to floods to heat waves.

Led by climate and health pioneer Jonathan Patz, the Global Health Institute at the University of Wisconsin-Madison champions practical solutions for well-being today and tomorrow.

  • Advancing healthy, sustainable urban transportation with the Health-Oriented Transportation initiative
  • Bringing an army of students to work on Wisconsin city priorities with the  UniverCity Alliance, co-founded by GHI
  • Restoring bicycling to Bahir Dar, Ethiopia
  • Bringing electricity to remote Indian villages
  • Connecting cities to the land in Guadalajara, Mexico

Together, UW-Madison and communities in Wisconsin and across the globe collaborate to show how healthy choices benefit all of us and the earth.
