Living Future Forum: Health

11 July 2018 at 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

$100 – $150
[siteorigin_widget class=”SiteOrigin_Widget_Image_Widget”][/siteorigin_widget]

A living future is one where everyone has access to quality health care, regardless of age, ability or wealth.

What needs to be done to design, operate, and manage environments that support this future?

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.

LFIA events are designed to be consistent with the national requirements for CPD across the built environment.

Nicola Willand | Lecturer, RMIT

Nicola’s recent PhD explored the intersection of climate change mitigation as an opportunity for health and housing as a social determinant of health and contributed to a better understanding of residential energy efficiency and health as a socio‐technical system.

Jean-Paul Bell | Humourmanatarian

As a clown doctor and advocate for the living rights of elders in aged care, Jean-Paul will emphasise the need for a sense of belonging, place, and respect in environments where a clinical approach often overrides the psycho-social elements of daily life, to suit government advice and concerns of family members.
