Building Well-being Project


The Building Well-Being project was commissioned by the Happold Trust to present a new vision of successful development, which delivers a built environment that works for both people and planet. In response to the pitfalls of a profit-driven speculative model of development alongside the unprecedented challenges facing our communities and environment today, we have explored the benefits and practical implications of placing high well-being and low environmental impact at the heart of development objectives.

Guests will be joined by a panel of speakers who will introduce and debate the issues before answering questions from the audience.

Michael Dickson
Chairman, The Happold Trust

Stewart Walls
Chief Executive, nef

Nicola Steuer
Head of the Centre for Well-being, nef

Sunand Prasad
