The central focus of Building the Future of Health is cooperation. Main sponsor VolkerWessels is working with clients and residents for a better quality of life. Central to the conference is the question how the design (and quality) of the built environment can contribute to our health and the Healthy Ageing ambition of adding two healthy life years to the life of the average European citizen by 2020. But how do we define quality of life? And what does this mean for society? The end user plays a crucial role in answering these questions. Volker Wessels not only builds a better environment but also ensures a higher quality of life.
