This report explores the current and future potential for innovation in the built environment. The ILC-UK believe that embracing and fostering innovation in health and wellbeing is imperative; the promotion of good health and wellbeing is not just clinical but should also be embedded holistically within communities as part of everyday life. Having a home that is accessible if you have physical impairments, a local environment that can encourage physical activity, and a transport system that allows you to access services and maintain social connections are all important to a person’s health and wellbeing.
