Abstract

The purpose of this report is to summarise the talks presented at the “Bartlett Research Exchange: Health and Wellbeing in the Built Environment” event which took place in February 2017. A gathering of academics and other interested parties came together to hear presentations by scholars from UCL Bartlett School of Architecture (Dr Yeoryia Manolopoulou, Prof Níall Mclaughlin and Dr Kerstin Sailer), UCL Institute of Neurology (Dr Sebastian Crutch), UCL Bartlett School of Environment, Energy and Resources (Prof Michael Davies and Dr Marcella Ucci), UCL Psychology and Language Sciences (Prof Susan Michie and Dr Hugo Spiers) and UCL Department of Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Engineering (Dr Lena Ciric). A current CASA project with the UCL Africa Centre for Health and Population Studies in South Africa was demonstrated at the end of the event by David Concannon (CASA). The event was convened by Professor Laura Vaughan, Vice-Dean Health at the UCL Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment, with introductory talks by the UCL Vice-Provost Health, Professor David Lomas and UCL Bartlett Dean, Professor Alan Penn. Much of the research conducted at the Bartlett is undertaken in collaboration with other UCL departments. Some of these studies were presented at the event to illustrate the variety of research that focuses on health and wellbeing. There are of course many other past and current projects that bridge across the two disciplines and a number of other recent studies focus on walkability, urban health, epidemiology, healthcare delivery and obesogenic environments. For example, Dr Andrea Rigon and Dr Alexandre Apsan Frediani from the Bartlett Development Planning Unit (DPU) have recently partnered with the Institute of Geography and Development Studies at Njala University, Sierra Leone to create a globally connected research centre – The Sierra Leone Urban Research Centre (SLURC) in Freetown . The centre aims to generate capacity building as well as research initiatives in cities across Sierra Leone focused on the wellbeing of residents of informal settlements.
