Lunch box talk: Do places make you fat?

The third of three lunch box talks on architecture and food looks at the links between healthy eating and our built environment.

Can fast food be healthy? How far can increased obesity be attributed to diet or sedentary lifestyle? How can the planning and design of the built environment influence how and what we eat when we’re on the move?

Julia Ellis, director of Architecture Centre MADE, presents key findings from ‘Lessons to Take-Away’ – their recent conference on planning, health and fast food lifestyles – with Alan Goodman, senior planner at Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council.

Julia Ellis comments: "Lessons to Take-Away on 30 June, is an agenda setting national conference with leading professionals and the latest research from planning, health and the food industry. Discussions centre on how the planning and design of places really can make us fat, particularly in relation to fast food lifestyles, young people and schools. This lunch box talk will be the first opportunity to hear about the outcomes of the conference and the lessons which delegates took away!"
