Urban health and wellbeing
Life in urban centres poses a wide variety of risks to our health and wellbeing. Air pollution and dense traffic have been linked to respiratory problems and poor sleeping patterns. Densely populated spaces and busy digitally connected lifestyles can stop us switching off and relaxing, negatively affecting wellbeing and mental health.
