Abstract: Representatives of nine local authorities, along with experts in urban planning and WHO staff, met in Maribor, Slovenia to launch a new multi-city action plan (MCAP) on health and local Agenda 21, led by the WHO Healthy Cities project within the framework of the European Sustainable Cities and Towns Campaign. The representatives described their authorities' current activities in this area; local Agenda 21 planning was usually led by environmental departments, and varied widely in extent. Although health is central to the concern for sustainable development, the health aspects of Agenda 21 were often porly represented in practice. The participants suggested amendments to the background papers, agreed on the products of the MCAP over the next six months, made an important statement on health and local Agenda 21, and agreed to meet again in Amadora in October 1996
