6th European Healthcare Design 2020 Congress & Exhibition

14 Σεπτεμβρίου 2020 @ 08:00 - 18 Σεπτεμβρίου 2020 @ 17:00

Healthcare is an active participant in the climate change and environmental degradation damaging our planet. So, our objective in 2020 is clear: to construct a comprehensive narrative for sustainable design in the widest sense – health system redesign, architecture, landscape, funding models, scientific and digital technologies, products and infrastructure, along with good food, art, performance, and nature.
.
In recognition of the urgent challenges that lay before us, the main plenary theme for European Healthcare Design 2020 will be healthcare ‘At the Tipping Point: Designing for Population and Planetary Health’. The Call for Papers has noe been launched, with the deadline for submission of abstracts set for 4 December, 2019.
.
Healthcare is now the biggest ‘industry’ in the world and the single largest component in the economies of many developed countries. It’s a voracious consumer of goods and services, producer of waste and generator of carbon. But if a physician’s primary obligation is to ‘do no harm’, then we must accept that a population-based health system has environmental responsibilities that extend far beyond its delivery of care.
.
Governments and systems are addressing these with varying degrees of success but the scale of the environmental challenge suggests that programmes of incremental change are insufficient. A fundamental transformation in service models is required. This, in itself, carries significant risk because we know that prescriptive and top-down driven changes to complex systems have unintentional consequences, which are often more disruptive than the reform’s primary objectives.
.
Organised by Architects for Health and Salus Global Knowledge Exchange, the European Healthcare Design Congress provides a vibrant forum for addressing these issues, bringing together clinicians, policy advisors, academics, architects, designers and artists. Now in our sixth year, we’ve grown into a worldwide virtual community that comes together once a year for two or three days in June at the Royal College of Physicians in central London.
