Dr Christian Brand attended a 2 day meeting at the World Health Organisation (WHO) European HQ in Copenhagen as an invited expert to develop the WHO's Health Economic Assessment Tools (HEAT) for walking and cycling.

Christian is developing a new HEAT "carbon module", which is planned to be launched by the WHO in October 2017. The tool will provide an answer to the question: "If x people cycle or walk for y km a week, what is the economic value of the carbon benefits that occur as a result of the reduction in carbon emissions from motorised travel due to true mode shift?"
