​Air quality is deteriorating in many of the world’s cities. Nearly two-thirds of people with diabetes live in urban areas. Wealthier lifestyles, prioritising convenience and fast food, has led to obesity issues and urban dwellers have far-higher stress levels than their rural counterparts. With over half of the world’s population living in urban areas, cities have a duty to do a better job of protecting public health. Architects and designers play a critical role in shaping the quality of our environment; they work in collaboration with end users and their needs and ambitions, and they have the power to restore and promote mental and physical health. This panel discussion will reveal ways in which the built environment industry is tackling these issues and where we can improve.

Designing for the Refugee Crisis

Over the past year the refugee situation across Europe has escalated into a full-blown crisis. Very recently local authorities in Calais began destroying sections of the “Jungle” – the sprawling refugee and migrant camp that has become a symbol of Europe's immigration crisis. Architects are equipped with the knowledge that can provide a solution to one of the most basic human rights refugees need: shelter. The question is not should the architectural community respond, but how? This panel discussion will shed light on some of the work architects and designers are doing in response to the crisis.
