The Place Standard Tool (PST) provides a set of questions to explore social and environmental dimensions of place from a health perspective. The PST is to foster communication on these issues at the local level among different communities, stakeholders as well as local politicians. Therefore, it meets the need for an integrated participatory approach to healthy urban development. The PST is in use all over Europe and has been applied in different contexts. This module imparts basic knowledge on the concepts of healthy urban development following the WHO Health in All Policies (HiAP) approach aiming at reducing health inequity in cities. In detail the PST with its dimensions and its methodological approach, including different approaches of participatory use of the PST, will be taught. In selected cities in different countries the PST will be applied. In a seminar, insights and results from different countries will be presented and discussed.
