Final seminar of Pufendorf Theme in cooperation with SWESIAQ

The program can be find here. 

2015-02-26 Tradition and innovation for indoor environments – problems, decisions and solutions

The aim of the workshop is to explore different developmental pathways to foster healthy indoor environments in a sustainable way. These pathways will represent different perspectives depending on specific geographic and cultural settings. They will contain a continuum from defining and understanding specific challenges to the implementation of solutions, but also reflect a view on human nature. Special focus will be placed on the challenges of adapting to current and future environmental change and how the building can play a role in creating a more sustainable society.

2015-01-29 Comfort, Preferences and behaviours

Seminar on indoor comfort and occupants behaviours

2014-12-18 Building workshop

Building Design and Performance – Challenges for construction

As we understand the importance of indoor environment for human health, we should also consider what buildings can provide.

Buildings are supposed to provide shelter, protection and comfort for the people who live, work and do activities in them. However, many buildings have been the sources of certain indoor environment health problems. How did these problems arise and how can we address them?

How can the building design and construction meet the demands from the building occupants and the requirement of energy saving without compromising with a healthy indoor environment? 

2014-11-27 Health workshop

Bio-Psycho-Social Aspects of Health

The modern human being spends a considerable amount of time indoors. This has led to an increased focus on quality aspects of our indoor environment in official buildings, at work, and in our homes. This workshop deals with the bio-psycho-social model of health and how it applies to the idea of healthy indoor environments.

While a great amount on knowledge have accumulated over the years, partly reflected in building regulations, there still exist knowledge gaps and questions pertaining to how to evaluate what a healthy building is. The definition of a healthy building is partly dependent on which actor (e.g. occupants, building contractor, architect, and health and safety inspectors) evaluates the situation. Different actors are likely to have different perspectives and motives and thus different criteria for what a healthy indoor environment is. This workshop places its emphasis on the “healthy” part of the theme “healthy indoor environments” by linking it with the bio-psycho-social model. 

Healthy Indoor Environments Workshop

This is the official release of our multidisciplinary theme at the Pufendorf Institute at Lund University. The day will be filled with presentations and discussions during which we hope for your contribution. We would like to find out your opinion about healthy indoor environments and the biggest challenges.

Address: Pufendorf Institute, Biskopsgatan 3/Sölvegatan 2, Lund
