Population Wellbeing and Environment Research Lab

Obesity, type 2 diabetes, dementia and loneliness are the epidemics of modern times and have been linked to urbanization that does not prioritise people and contact with nature.

The goal of the PowerLab is to enhance understandings of how people and equity orientated changes in urban environments can enable population wellbeing and human flourishing across the life course.

We do this by working with policymakers, practitioners and the public to co-produce, collaborate and communicate evidence for positive change.
