It’s often said that “home is where the heart is,” and we want to put wellbeing at the “heart” of our buildings. The environment in our homes has the potential to significantly affect our health and wellbeing. Increasing awareness of these impacts and translating them into value are important parts of our mission.
As we develop the scope for this part of the campaign, we are:
- Reviewing the evidence base and identifying gaps;
- Talking to leading experts and stakeholder groups; and
- Exploring what types of tools and guidance can improve outcomes through the whole building lifecycle.
Stay tuned for more coming from Better Places for People on health and wellbeing in residential buildings. Our report is due to be released March, 2017 and there will be updates and blog posts ongoing.
