Who we are?


SALUS is an entrepreneurial global media, research, publishing, events and training organisation with a vision to improve human and planetary health through the global exchange of knowledge. The Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design in London is the Royal College of Art’s largest and longest-running centre for design research. Founded in 1991 and endowed by the Helen Hamlyn Trust, our purpose is to conduct design research and projects with industry that will contribute to improving people’s lives.

Advisory group

Our Advisory Group features esteemed members from the fields of architecture, urban design and planning, public health, science and research, and health policy. They provide a valuable sounding board for the organisers in developing the Congress and its themes.

Local organising committee

We aim to host Healthy City Design in different cities around the UK, with a two-year residency. To this end, our Local Organising Committee will comprise leaders and experts with a stake in and knowledge of the host city and its area. They will be key to ensuring each Congress considers the local context and that it embeds the local community within its programme and associated events.
