This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the relation between neighbourhood renewal and health improvement. It highlights the potential of neighbourhoods as places for engagement for addressing health inequalities, not only at the local level, but also in the global context. The chapter also discusses Robert Wright's optimistic argument that we are continually learning how to achieve solutions to the challenges which the growing complexity of societies pose for social policy and governance.

Keywords:   neighbourhood renewal, health improvement, health inequalities, Robert Wright, complex societies, social policy, governance
