The spaces we inhabit—whether built, psychological or digital—are the foundations of our health and happiness. How, then, do our ever-evolving urban environments and shared public spaces guide the way we behave? And what can we learn from both science and design about the relationship between our mental and physical environments? Join us under the petals as our evening’s panellists—scientists Julie Bernhardt and Emma Burrows from the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health; behaviourologist, urbanist and designer Jonathan Daly of Studio Huss; and moderator (plus writer, editor and publisher at Uro Media) Andrew Mackenzie—get stuck into a cross-pollinated discussion of 21st-century wellbeing and space.
