Is our health affected by our surroundings? Discussion with Jane Findlay, President of LI

Joined by Jane Findlay, President of the Landscape Institute and Director of Fira who describes herself as passionate about promoting the psychological and physical benefits that quality landscape design plays in all aspects of the public realm.  In this podcast episode we discuss just that, focusing on the sectors of urban design, education and healthcare.

Did you know that local doctors are prescribing less anti-depressants to people who live on tree-lined streets?  This type of data should underpin how we design.  With Jane we discuss the evolution of Evidenced-Based Design (EBD), the influence of Florence Nightingale and take a look at a few landmark projects.
