Presentation: With the sequential events of the Summer Bushfire crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic, the fundamental importance of Planetary and Human health has been brought to forefront. These events have highlighted the need for increased Sustainability and Health & Wellbeing measures within our Built Environment, on both a large scale in our precincts and shopping centres, and on a personal level within our homes.
