What effects do design, materials, maintenance and operations, to name a few, have on us?!Come find out, and share what YOU know about this and related matters.To help us get started – all the way from Brisbane, Australia – Nicole Border will share what she's learned about what affects human behaviour. Behaviours that impact our mental and physical health are influenced by many factors: psychological, social, environmental, economic and political. Nicole works across these multiple areas of influence to identify strategies that protect and promote health.Nicole will talk about ways to leverage the Healthy Buildings approach to enhance the physical and mental health of our communities.Dinner @ 6:30 pmSharing @ 7:00 pmThe Bistro will feature a select menu, comprising a vegetarian meal (with meat option), as well as a lighter fare.
