People with Impact: How do buildings shape our behavior, health, and even our happiness?

12-1pm Eastern Time - Webinar

October 27, 2020

PWI_EventbriteHeader_2.jpgTune in for conversation as we deep dive into science writer Emily Anthes’ latest book, The Great Indoors, which opens our eyes to an unseen scientific world of microbiomes and other stimuli within indoor environments and the relatively untapped potential to impact our behavior, health, and psychological well-being. Join us in discovering how intelligent design in homes, offices, schools, and healthcare spaces can benefit users of all backgrounds and abilities not only in the indoor environments and the natural world we know, but also as we pioneer into Space.

Oh, and yes, we're giving away a few copies of the book.
