Dr Marcella Ucci contributes an article on the importance of the ‘wellbeing revolution’ for IWBI

The links between sustainable building design and well-being are obvious to many professionals and academics, yet the role of buildings in individual or population health and well-being has been largely overlooked in the past decades. The ‘green agenda’ seemed to dominate, due to the rise of environmental imperatives such as climate change mitigation and adaptation, resource scarcity and so on. Imperatives linked to public health, workforce productivity and related issues may have seemed more established fields, perhaps running on different if not parallel tracks.

The full article is availble on the IWBI website.
