BEGINS the event blurb: “There is much evidence that places affect our health and wellbeing.
“Healthy places can support our cognitive, psychological and physical development, promote social interaction and affect how we function in early and later years.
“Places we inhabit are planned and designed at various scales, from city-wide to local neighbourhoods and to houses we live in.
“It is therefore important that we discuss how best to shape our natural and built environment components to provide a long-lasting support for generations to come.
“This is particularly important today when we are dealing with pandemic and have seen transformations of streets and neighbourhoods to accommodate changing needs.”
Professor Georgia Butina Watson, School of Built Environment at Oxford Brookes University, presents the Nathaniel Lichfield Annual Lecture.
