New report argues better-designed cities can improve the mental health and wellbeing so save governments money
September 26, 2018
Better designed cities could save our society and the UK economy an estimated £15.3bn by 2050 – and make us all happier and healthier.
This report quantifies, for the first time, the potential economic benefits of designing places for mental wellbeing. It also outlines a route map for putting health and wellbeing at the heart of development.
The analysis was carried out by WPI Economics and commissioned by British Land. It builds on earlier research and good practice by leading organisations.
