Our current topic

Each term has a different theme. First, in October, November and December, we will focus on the determinants of health and wellbeing in where we live. We will start with the built environment and then move to the natural environment, recognising the social, economic and environmental conditions that influence the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities to explore how they affect the way we view and live in cities of the future.

Between January and March 2017, we will build on the discussions we had during our last year’s topic and focus on diets and lifestyles. We will start by looking at how our diets may change in the future and ways in which these changes could impact the environment. We will then turn to what drives the choices people make and finally, we will discuss 'catalysing change' and the role that policy and advocacy could play in changing what people eat and how active they are.

In April, May and June, we will explore People and the new population dynamics in a rapidly changing world and more details will be available later this term.
