Public Spaces Research Cluster



This AHRC-funded research cluster, based at the University of the West of England in Bristol, is exploring the potential of the creative design of outdoor public spaces in promoting healthy and inclusive environments for the next generation. Its website currently provides background information on the project, together with reports and presentations from a series of workshops examining issues such as the role of design in counteracting young people's sedentary lifestyles, and attitudes to safety in outdoor play environments.
