Conference Proceeding: Designing for Healthy and Happy Cities

Phillipa Grant, Shaun Killa, Katherine Bruce

Abstract


Many developments have occurred in the Middle East/North African region since the call for greater wellbeing was made by governments, institutions, and the private sector alike. This includes the building, development, architectural and urban planning space. AESG have taken a lead in this direction. Regularly promoting topics of discussion and interest in the field, the current panel formed the content for the morning’s talk on the need to identify the physical and mental health impacts of the built environment on city occupants, exploring alternative urban planning solutions for improving city health and well-being. A short presentation from AESG opened the event and was followed by a panel discussion.
