In association with New London Architecture and Center for Architecture, join us for a discussion on how we can transform streets to support mental and physical health.
The significant role of the public realm for mental and physical health has been particularly highlighted in the last two years. Encouraging active travel, access to nature, social gathering places, and air quality are all aspects of a healthier city for its residents. How are public policies and designers embracing this challenge to create streets that support and promote wellbeing of residents?
New York and London will take this opportunity to share thought leadership forecasting how we can learn from these experimentations and propose new ways of using streets. This event forms a part of our NY-LON yearly series, which brings together speakers and audiences to foster cross-city dialogue and learning between global cities.
