Healthy buildings, cities and you. How to design future living environments

The pandemic has greatly affected health in general, and the way we live, work and communicate. It has raised awareness of the importance of designing cities to promote the health and well-being of the people living in them. On average only 10 per cent of time is spent outdoors – so by the time you are 80, you will have spent 72 years indoors.

This report shows how attention to a healthier indoors, a more balanced natural outdoor urban environment and increased physical activity can result in a city that benefits both mental and physical health for its inhabitants.
