Over the summer, The Quality of Life Foundation have been hosting a series of online panel discussions focusing on key themes that support and nurture quality of life in our homes and communities. It’s clear
that as people have had to spend more time in their homes and neighbourhoods than ever before over lockdown, the effect of the built environment on their quality of life has never been more pronounced.
They’re working with partners in the industry to look at how we can build more homes and communities that prioritise people’s physical, social and psychological wellbeing over the long term.
Creating buildings and neighbourhoods where people feel ‘at home’ nurtures cultures that are intrinsic to a place and help people to build roots, traditions and identities, which also contributes to a sense of belonging. Designing lifelong neighbourhoods and being part of a community able to express and perform traditions allows people to feel they have a claim to a space.
WHAT THE GLASS-HOUSE WILL BE DOING
Our Chief Executive Sophia will be one of the panelists involved in the discussion.
This is a free event.
