As we work towards a more socially just, inclusive and healthy future, design professionals are being asked to deploy and develop tools and techniques for engagement and practice. Policy frameworks not only facilitate the design of our physical surroundings, both natural and built environments, but also serve as a vehicle for designers and planners to harness their capacity to yield profound and positive health impacts on near term measurable outcomes and future trajectories.
This panel will discuss how research and practice are working to identify and support policy-centered, equitable design solutions that improve the physical and mental well-being of communities,from individuals and neighborhoods to regional landscapes and populations.
