Active design: enabling active lives
Wednesday 17th June 12:05 - 12:45
Active Design can enable people to be more active – delivering improved health and the wider benefits of cutting carbon emissions and improving air quality.
But there are challenges to ensuring the correct infrastructure is delivered, not only to enable people to use Active Travel solutions, but also to drive the necessary culture change to make this the norm rather than the exception. Change is also needed within schools and workplaces to encourage activity during the working day – with active design of buildings to encourage a healthy environment.
