About this talk

Digital innovation in the 21st century has been seismic. Digital products and services have radically impacted our experience of places; enabling us to plan a trip, find our way, pay for services, locate our friends, play augmented reality street games and so much more. 


In this session, Jo Morrison explores how place-based digital technologies can enhance the ways that people experience their neighbourhoods - with the aim of improving health and wellbeing. It draws upon findings from recent groundbreaking research undertaken for NHS North East London that has community engagement and co-design at its heart.


Attendees will learn how local authorities, NHS Trusts, landowners and developers can adopt a digital placemaking approach to benefit place-based public health.
