The important role that the environment plays in health and well-being is widely accepted, as is the impact that the built and natural environment can have on levels of physical activity.
As levels of physical activity are a key determinant of health, promoting physical activity through actions to improve the environment is a priority for public health action.
The challenge for public health, designers and for the SHINE Health Integration Team is to ensure that the way the environment is shaped and transformed by a range of professionals, organisations and agencies, maximises health gain in relation to health, including physical activity.
Hear a range of speakers from different disciplines converge and discuss the challenges, benefits and importance of creating landscapes that encourage people to engage in healthy lifestyles, with physical and mental health benefits.
Chaired by Dr Laurence Carmichael, Head of the WHO Collaborating Centre for Healthy Urban Environments, UWE
- Dr Adrian Davis, Co-Director SHINE, Visiting Professor, UWE
- Sarah Hollingworth, Architecture 00
- Sarah Jones-Morris, Vice Chair of Landscape Institute South West, Founder of Landsmith Associates
