LI CPD: Health, Wellbeing and Place
27 Jan 2021
Day 1.1 Opening and Keynote: From movement to memories – How landscape shapes our health and wellbeing
The causes of ill-health today are different from those 50 years ago, and we must continue to shape places that support the mental and physical health of 21st century populations. Uncover the research available in this keynote session, such as the ‘Putting Health into Place’ report from the Healthy New Towns project, which provides extensive practical advice on how to build the healthiest places possible.
