The consequences of the coronavirus pandemic will continue to unfold for some time; however, the value of our Health & Wellbeing has already been brought into keen focus. Both our physical and mental health have been threatened and our social interactions constrained to a virtual world. Existing socio-economic divides have been exacerbated with the lockdown experienced very differently across society.

As we navigate our recovery towards a ‘new normal’, we discuss the key factors in ensuring the built environment sector can contribute to the restorative improvement of public health and wellbeing.

Our workplaces will change in the short–term to minimise risk of transmission, however long–term shifts in working patterns are also being accelerated. At the same time our homes have become our workplaces bringing their fitness and design quality into sharp focus, with positive and negative impacts felt on mental health and productivity accordingly.

This engaging workshop will explore the potential short- and long-term changes to our homes and workplaces and illustrate how focus on health & wellbeing is essential to a green recovery. WorldGBC will also present their pilot Health & Wellbeing goals for 2030 and 2050, and discuss the core principles of healthy, equitable and resilient communities and cities.
