Abstract: This project aims to shed light on the deeply alive, human dimensions of sustainability work by proposing planning and design as healing arts. It calls for deeper inquiry into the relationships between healthy cities and the people that shape and live within the built environment. Drawing on current sustainability planning frameworks as well as a broad literature on health and wellness, this research seeks to deepen our understanding of what constitutes healing cities. It is my hope that taking into account what elements make people “whole” will bring new vibrancy and depth to the current conversation surrounding sustainable development. The result of this project is the Healing Cities Framework that incorporates mind, body, and spirit, dimensions into a holistic sustainability planning approach.
