Event description

Description

This event will comprise of a short series of 10-15 minute talks with a chaired Q&A session afterwards. We will be asking attendees to join us as we explore how interventions in the built environment can improve mental health outcomes for students. These could relate to behavioural issues, reduction of stress, improving the experience of mobility and/or reducing loneliness

Our speakers are now confirmed as:

  • Professor Miranda Wolpert; Director, Evidence Based Practice Unit, UCL
  • Professor Ian Dunn; Deputy Vice Chancellor (Student Experience), Coventry University
  • Ben Channon; Author of “Happy by design” and Mental Wellbeing Ambassador, Assael Architecture
  • Nichola Garde; Head of College at My Support College
  • Dr Zachery Spire; Post Doctoral Research Associate, UCL Bartlett
  • Neil Smith; Head of Inclusive Design and Dr Jamie Anderson; Senior sustainability consultant, BuroHappold Engineering

This is the first event specifically targeted to discuss this issue in a collaborative framework and including feedback on recent research.

Attendees will take away an improved appreciation of the scale of the issue and how we as built environment practitioners can play our part in improving outcomes.
