What if the environment we live, work, and play in could improve our wellbeing?
When we think about transforming our cities into resilient and sustainable cities, it is not enough to think about infrastructure and buildings. We can never forget that – ultimately – we build our cities for people. You, me, all of us. We should aim to build places where people can thrive, be happy and healthy, and connect with each other.
No matter if we are looking to improve employee wellbeing, student performance, patient recovery, or community health, the buildings and neighborhoods we operate in play a significant role.
Whenever we talk about well-being,
our spatial context comes into play.
