Living Future Forum: Health



WHEN: 8.30am-12pm – 11 Jul 2018

COST: LFIA Member $100; Non-Member $150


Too often vulnerable members of our community find themselves in the least nurturing built environments. Many community, residential, and health facilities are spaces we would prefer not to spend time in, given the choice.

These places are commonly at the mercy of inconsistent funding and subsequently poor design and construction, leaving an under-resourced staff to continuously try to do more with less in operation.

The 2018 Living Future Forum will be a unique opportunity to learn, contribute, examine your own perspectives and others, to present new solutions and ideas for a healthy future. We want to hear your thoughts and experiences - whether you work on the front line at a hospital, manage a community centre, or design and develop the built environment - it's time to come together, identify the issues and the opportunities for positive change.

Together we will explore ways to improve access and quality of health care for under-served communities, under the lenses of biophilic design integration, healthy materials selection, and the financial and economic impacts of doing so.

This forum is suitable for anyone involved in the development and operation of these spaces, in public health, or the built environment, in industry or academia. Speakers will include Amanda Sturgeon (CEO, International Living Future Institute), Jean-Paul Bell (Founder of the Clown Doctors program/’Humourmanatarian’), and Anthony Nolan (Partner, Kennedy Associate Architects).
