Healthy Workplace Event explores: Did you know that 54% of people worldwide now live in cities, which is up from 30% in 1950 and 5% 200 years ago? Forecasts estimate that by 2050, 70% of the world’s population will live in cities – it’s extraordinary to think 3 million people are moving to cities every week.

This represents mass urban migration on an unprecedented scale, with the principle driving incentive being economic opportunity, and the pull of work.

At a time of growing debate about the need for more equitable, healthy and more sustainable responses to changes in the way people live, work, rest and play, this interactive panel session (hosted in London by knowledge sponsors Herman Miller) will explore how a revolution in “work and workplace” in the city needs to respond to citizen and worker’s fundamental human needs.

Cities must be designed to support active lifestyles and wellness, whilst catalysing a sense of belonging and purpose.
