Bringing forest schools to the inner city


Building ‘green’ is no longer just about reducing carbon emissions. It’s about creating spaces that can improve people’s health and wellbeing, requiring in-depth understanding of user needs. This is even more important in dense urban areas where people are facing challenges like overcrowding and poor air quality.

This event will explore how we can design for better wellbeing by engaging with users right from the start, creating bespoke briefs according to their specific needs, and by continuing to measure how successful a building design is once in use for continued learning. You’ll also hear direct from an end user who will provide inspiration and lessons learned from an urban school environment.

Our expert panel will include designers, Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) specialists and the head teacher from the award winning Lime Tree Primary Academy. Together they’ll help you better understand the principles of engaging with users to design healthier buildings, using the digital design and engagement tool, WellBriefing, and how these could be applied to your next project.

Breakfast will be served from 08:30 – 09:00.
