Maslow’s hierarchy of needs has governed the blueprint of urban development for generations with the guiding principles being food, shelter and clothing needed to survive. However, this hierarchy has gaps in adaptability, sustainability, equity and technological advancement. 

The needs required to survive and those required to thrive are two very different things. An individuals quality of life and dignity needs to be taken into account in order to address social injustices such as inequity, climate change, environmental and systematic racism, corporate responsibility, economic and wealth disparities and more. 

Cities are rethinking urban spaces not only from the perspective of health but ecology and equity. This has created the need for an adjustable, equitable and sustainable blueprint for development based on what is required to thrive not just survive. 
 

Join UNITAR and Peponi Conservation for this exciting panelist discussion to learn more on:

1) What does Whole Health mean?
2) What is the link between Financial Health and Equity?
3) How does Physical Health and Environmental Sustainability play a role? 
4) Understand the importance and cohesion between mental health, hygiene, emotional health and spiritual awareness.
