The Science and Future of Healthy Buildings 2022: The Future of Learning Spaces

This international webinar takes a science-based Nordic approach on Sustainable and Accessible Future Learning Spaces.

The Science and Future of Healthy Buildings is the leading Webinar series in Europe. It's brought to you by leading Nordic companies Naava, Signify, and Kinnarps.


Welcome to a digital webinar where we will find out how one piece of the puzzle, the physical environment, can help create sustainable and accessible learning spaces that improve learning.

Our schools are one of our most essential environments in society. It is where our children spend most of their waking time and where they should have the desire to learn and be prepared for the future. The schools' mission is to promote all students' learning and give them the best opportunity to reach their full potential. It is a complex task, and several factors affect how well a school succeeds.
