Watch Parlour LAB 22, a fantastic online discussion about happiness, safety, social cohesion and neighbourliness, with Rebecca Wickes and Jennifer Kent.

What does happiness mean in relation to the built environment? How can our neighbourhoods support or inhibit happiness? And what of loneliness? What types of neighbourhood places can encourage social cohesion and might other spatial aspects destabilise our communities?

Watch this lively session with Jennifer Kent and Rebecca Wickes in conversation with conveners Rebecca McLaughlan and Alison McFadyen.

To find out more about our speakers’ work, read Jennifer Kent, Emily Rugel and Marlee Bower, “Why loneliness is both an individual thing and a shared result of the cities we create“, The Conversation.
