A regular series of evening seminars from guest speakers and colleagues. Free and open to all.

Free public lectures given by leading international visitors to the School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture.

To support our postgraduate students in developing their presentation skills, and to share their work with peers and colleagues across the University of Edinburgh and beyond, we have established the OPENspace research seminar series.

This presentation will provide an overview of what we know about the links between urban nature, nature connection and health and wellbeing. International case studies will then be used to highlight practical approaches to applying the evidence base and optimising the wellbeing promoting potential of urban nature.

Natalie’s research interests focus on healthy buildings and how the built environment impacts people’s health (physical, psychological and social). Nature has been shown to help work-related stress. But how can nature be efficiently incorporated inside and will it have the same positive impact?

Forget the study, the books, and the armchair. Thinking is not a lone, individual act but a social process, embedded in what I have called “the social buzz”: the constant implicit discussion – agreement, disagreement, qualification, passionate opining – of ideas by the people constituting the social environment of the thinker. Three aspects can be derived from that collective nature of thought.
