Feeling Good: Wellbeing & the Built Environment Conference
Maryhill Burgh Halls, Glasgow

The health and wellbeing of a population is a key focus for any government and the Scottish Government recognises that the built environment has a significant impact on the health of Scotland’s people.

When discussing public health, architecture and place may not be the first thing that springs to mind. Yet buildings and spaces play an inescapable role in shaping the quality of our lives; they determine what people do and where and how they move around, they have the power to restore and promote civic pride, community resilience, mental and physical health and be a source of happiness.
