    Abstract Urbanisation is one of the leading global trends having a significant impact on health. The World Health Organization estimates that more than 70 percent of the world’s population will live in cities by the middle of this century. Unfortunately, these transformations are happening too quickly but in unplanned way and thus many municipalities are unable to find the proper balance necessary for preventing a range of symptoms from developing, which can leave a city rather sick and in turn impact the well-being of residents.
