World Health Day 2010 Theme: Urbanization and Health

1000 Cities, 1000 Lives is the campaign. Cities are being registered now, and WHO says events will be held worldwide April 7-11.

The health of 3 billion people who live in cities around the world is the focus on World Health Day 2010, with cities already being registered and events scheduled during April 7-11. The 1000 cities, 1000 lives campaign is attempting to open more public spaces to health, such as with parks, town hall meetings, cleanup campaigns, or closing city streets to motorized vehicles; and to collect 1,000 stories of urban health champions "who have taken action and had a significant impact on health in their cities," according to the World Health Organization.

You can follow the campaign's progress here or on YouTube, Facebook, and Flickr.

According to WHO, the worldwide urban population was above 50 percent in 2007 for the first time in history, and it will hit 60 percent by 2030, 70 percent by 2050.

On the social media sites, visitors can upload videos and photos, explain what their cities are doing to promote residents' health, and nominate an urban health hero.
