      The Crowd LATES: Wellbeing in Sustainable Cities

      A successful global transition to sustainable, low carbon economies depends increasingly on managing unprecedented urban growth: maximizing the economic benefits of urbanisation while minimizing environmental degradation and social inequalities. By 2050, 68% of the world’s population is projected to be urban. Beyond providing the infrastructure required to support resource-efficient cities, what is required from the public and private sectors to shift understanding of sustainability to a more holistic human-centred approach, with health, wellbeing and happiness at the core of urban development? Although current practices and processes in urban areas often fail to comprehensively align sustainability targets with the wellbeing considerations of residents, workers and communities, the business case for embracing sustainability and wellbeing simultaneously has never been stronger. Meanwhile, in public health policy wellbeing considerations in the built environment is emerging as a prominent theme, responsible businesses are increasingly prioritising the physical and mental health of employees and new opportunities for cross-sector collaboration are emerging through opening up access to space and nature in urban areas. The Crowd LATES is a discussion series showcasing cutting edge ideas on social, economic and environmental sustainability. Can’t attend? In advance of the event we are crowdsourcing questions for the panel. You can also submit a question via the registration page. Panel speakers include: Nicky Philpott, Director, UK Health Alliance on Climate Change Simon Brammer, Head of Cities, Ashden Robert Macdiarmid, Sustainability Leader, previously Group Sustainability Director, Redrow Homes Isabella Murfin, Director of Strategy and Impact, Earthwatch
