New survey to explore role of built environment in creating healthy places

Design Council and Social Change UK are undertaking research to uncover what people working in the built environment do to create healthy places, the barriers that prevent professionals from going further, and how these barriers could be overcome in the future.

An increasing body of evidence shows that built environment contributes to health outcomes, particularly in terms of activity and social interaction. Launched on Friday 31 March, Design Council’s new research project explores the role of built environment professionals in addressing health challenges in the UK. It aims to find out what hinders professionals from creating places that could help people of all ages and backgrounds lead healthy, active lives, eat well and enjoy their social lives.

Through the survey, Design Council is seeking opinions and experiences from professionals in all built environment disciplines. The survey helps professionals gauge their credentials in creating healthy places through their work on projects, policies and programmes.

The survey takes 5-10 minutes to complete and runs until 26 April. The research findings will be published in June 2017, and by completing the survey, participants can sign up to receive a report summarising the findings.

 

Take the survey here.
