The mental, physical and emotional wellbeing of individuals and communities is what enables cities to fourish.
LONDON: OUR FIRST "MINDFUL CITY"
A global network of Mindful Cities is our ultimate goal. To integrate wellness into everyday urban spaces, and spark new habits that improve people's overall happiness and quality of life.
Be still in the centre of the city, and feel its beating heart around you.
Over the next two years, with partner support, we aim to reach communities across London
and beyond with our Mindful Cities initiative.
Starting with squares and gardens, inspiring architecture and river views, partner support helps us provide free-to-use OPO points that will remain permanently in position and enhance London as we strive towards a "mindful city".
The town squares of London are wonderous oases that patchwork the city, designed for moments of stillness and pleasure within the urban noise
Green spaces are the lungs of the city. They are places for us to connect on a deeper level with nature. A reminder of the natural world we live in. To bring moments of rest from the urban pace.
Architecture can contribute to well being as a form of therapy by evoking contemplative states and heightened internal and external awareness.
Take a mindful walk outside and breathe in the views around you. Move and shift your energy to feel more supported in your day.
Take in new perspectives of the river and discover installations by renown artists like Damien Hirst and Antony Gormley.
