This guide is aimed at all built environment educators, showing what the key issues are in terms of improving health understanding in the built environment professions. It will explain the relevance, show how the built environment impacts on health and its implications for education and provide examples of good practice in teaching. By making these connections, graduates should be emerging into the workplace with a good understanding of the health impacts of their professional work and be equipped with techniques and examples to help them deliver healthier places in the future. The guide draws on the work of the Education Network for Healthier Settlements, a group of built environment educators from the UK and beyond who are developing ways to reconnect health and the built environment in the professions.
