Healthy Buildings

We believe that the most important aspect of this burgeoning healthy buildings movement is ensuring that the research and its application benefits everyone, everywhere. A future of healthy buildings that is confined to a select few would be a gross failing. Researchers must play an important role here by creating studies that include: globally diverse buildings and exposures; races and ethnicities that have been historically under-represented in research; a focus on the unique needs, physiology, and preferences of women; and exploring the entirety of the reproduction and life cycles, from pre-conception through advanced aging.

The future of healthy buildings must be one where they are the norm, not the exception. Health cannot and should not be a luxury item, afforded to only those that can afford it. This applies to healthcare, working conditions, access to food, and, yes, the buildings where we live, work, play, pray, and heal.
