How can urban designers draw on neuroscience and ecology to address growing mental health issues in our cities?

The Australian Urban Design Research Centre (AUDRC) invites you to the launch of Wildness and Wellbeing - Nature, Neuroscience, and Urban Design by Dr Zoe Myers

Wildness and Wellbeing explores the dynamic relationships between urban nature and mental health.Presenting the latest research, it demonstrates how neuroscience can offer new perspectives on the crucial role everyday, multi-sensory interactions with nature can have on our mental wellbeing. These insights can help us (un)design our streets, neighbourhoods and cities, allowing nature to be integrated back into our urban areas and offering practical strategies for urban design.

Wildness and Wellbeing is for anyone interested in the connections between urban ecology, health, environmental science, planning, and urban design.

Please join us to launch this exciting research, followed by refreshments with the team.
