The mental, physical, economic, and social impact of COVID-19 globally is unprecedented and has ignited a multi-disciplinary conversation about well-being. Important in this conversation is that experiences over the last year have resulted in greater awareness and understanding of critical issues related to the built environment and human health and well-being. Identifying and communicating effective strategies that support and promote health and well-being is vital to the profession, the public, and policy makers. This course is based on a 2021 ASID Impact Review addressing Health and Well-Being Insights. The course format is a panel discussion of design professionals who have addressed these topics from both a theoretical and practical vantage point.
- Explore the results of an ASID research study on health and well-being in the context of a post pandemic time related to interior environments.
- Identify the human-centered influencing factors that contribute to health and well-being in people.
- Recognize the resilient factors of health and well-being in terms of meeting basic human needs.
- Review the holistic way that wellness dimensions are interconnected, linked to the environment and experiences.
