The global health and wellbeing challenge – how can the built environment respond?
Globally people are living longer, more urban and more digitally connected lives than ever before. But these changes are not necessarily resulting in improved health and wellbeing for all.
The report emphasises the role of the built environment. How we plan, design, build and live in our cities and our buildings has important implications for how healthy and well we can be.
Our awareness of the impacts of health and wellbeing at both individual building and community levels has never been more advanced. With the Sustainable Development Goals, there now exists not only a growing body of evidence to support us, but also the political will to see the right choices are made.
We are focusing on ten priorities which we believe have the potential to bring positive outcomes for all.
