Event description

Description

Help us understand how city living is affecting mental health and wellbeing

Please join us for the launch of Urban Mind, an international research project exploring how the urban environment influences mental health and wellbeing.

Over three-and-a-half billion people, more than half the world’s population, live in urban areas. This number is rising fast, and it is expected that 66% of the global population will live in cities by 2050. What are the implications of this increasing urbanisation for our mental health and wellbeing?

Urban Mind is a citizen-science project exploring the wider questions that surround urban planning, social policy, design and health, as well as historical and cultural perspectives on the city and the human mind.

The launch will see the research team and experts from the arts and sciences discuss the project from different perspectives. Guest speakers include Siobhan Davies (Artist/Choreographer), Daniel Raven-Ellison (Campaigner/Urban Geographer), Professor Gunter Schumann (Centre for Population Neuroscience & Stratified Medicine, King's College London).
