Supporting the emotional, mental and physical health of Londoners
The NLA Wellbeing programme explores the role of design in delivering healthy places and in making a real difference to the emotional, mental and physical health of Londoners. With patterns in lifestyle changing in the wake of the pandemic the built environment needs to ensure we live, work and play in happy healthy places.
Mass urbanisation and the rise of digitalisation are having a dramatic effect on wellbeing. We are permanently stimulated in an increasingly dense environment and therefore, it has never been more vital for us to rethink how we plan and build the city. How do we ensure London’s built environment; our homes, streets, workplaces and green spaces promote and encourage a healthy population? With climate change set to disrupt our cities, how do we future proof our building stock to mitigate the effects of weather changes on wellbeing? How can we ensure our buildings are healthy and sustainable and will support current and future citizens?
The Expert Panel addresses the fundamental barriers to making long lasting change in the wellbeing space, reviewing policies and projects under the lens of social justice, sustainability and health.
