13th World Congress for Design & Health

April 14 - April 18

Registration is NOW OPEN for the 13th World Congress of Design & Health!

Join us in Ghent, Belgium to explore how the philosophy of ‘less is more’ can apply to design and health in order to achieve better health outcomes.

Throughout WC2020, we wish to explore how improved health outcomes do not require more hospital beds, they require a change in the built environment and embracing the aid of technology that will positively impact health and wellness.

CONGRESS THEME:      Less is More

WHEN:                                   April 14 to 18, 2020

WHERE:                                 Ghent, Belgium

Our goal for WC2020 is empower YOU, the individuals in our industry, to be part of the solution and to use your work to solve this problem of “Health Change” and contribute towards the necessary evolution in the built environment.


We look forward to seeing you there!
