SALUS is a global knowledge, media and research organisation with a vision to improve human and planetary health by design. Our mission is to create, share and disseminate knowledge concerning the relationship between human health and the natural, built and social environment with a focus on the intersection of science & technology, architecture, lifestyle, urbanism, and sustainable development (SALUS). We believe that the two great challenges of our age – the need to maintain and improve human health and wellbeing in the face of ageing populations and an epidemic of chronic disease, and addressing climate change through a more sustainable management of the earth’s finite resources – are inextricably linked. Healthy people require a healthy planet. In today’s global knowledge society, the solutions to this huge human and planetary health crisis lie within our grasp, but will require global political will and a wider sense of civic responsibility and corporate social responsibility to embrace collaboratively the social, economic and environmental changes needed. SALUS aims to support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement’s global climate goals by building interdisciplinary professional communities and networks that will facilitate knowledge-led collaborations through a range of media, publishing, research, events and training activities that promote the application and interaction of art, science, culture and innovation. SALUS are the organisers of the European Healthcare Design and Healthy City Design Congresses, and SALUS TV.
