Cities are more than mere physical structures or modern settlement patterns. Cities are the places where we wake up, live, laugh, love, work, learn, and retire for the night. Such cities can be understood as a form of habitat and are, in fact, one of the most recent habitats on planet Earth. On the urban design is one of the most significant methods of preventing the presence of diseases and promote a healthy human habitat. The WHO categorizes noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), as urban society’s greatest public health challenge. NCDs include chronic diseases such as cancer and asthma but also lifestyle diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. On a societal scale, the human habitat consists of the total sum of all its individuals from all population groups. In the field of natural sciences, diversity is acknowledged as promoting rich and healthy habitats, enabling systems to be resilient and allowing all organisms to adapt to change. Correspondingly, it is inherently important that the human habitat also encompass diversity. After the increasing of people’s number in the city during our last century the social life has been changed as well because of a lot of factors such as people connections, the differences between cities and country side, people behavior and people need therefore, the cities need to be updated according to these changes of people. Accordingly, the social environment in houses and streets became different because people started to use the streets more than before in their life moments so every details in the urban must be part of the people’s life and this is the reason that you couldn’t take a specific well design project from USA to put it in Italy even if the project is super succussed because the people’s social life in USA is different than in Italy every one of them has different kind of life’s details during the day so this is one of the most important point that we need to consider when we work with any project related to social life. And indirect relations and connections between both of them, first of all the urban transformation must be based on the people’s needs and which changes that they want to have in their urban scale starting from the building design to street network and urban social activities for public. Secondly, there are some changes in urban transformation impact on people’s life style such as bikes lane, running tracks and public gathering spaces therefore, the connection between urban and social life is two ways not only from one to another but it’s between both of them to deliver the perfect life for people who are living in this city. At the end Vital city is one of the most important strategy nowadays to tackle with various of urban and society issues. Therefore, the thesis explores how could we apply this concept in different communities with different background and needs. Therefore, you can find the application of the vital city process in Torino, Italy and Cairo, Egypt to figure out how this strategy will impact on the society and how it’s going to change their life style and make the country more sustainable with healthy life for their people.
