RISC and Baanlaesuan reveal ‘10 Innovations for Healthy and Sustainable Homes'

RISC and Baanlaesuan reveal ‘10 Innovations for Healthy and Sustainable Homes’

“RISC by MQDC, under its principle of 'For All WellBeing', focuses on quality of life not only for residents but for society as a whole,” said Assoc. Prof. Dr. Singh Intrachooto, Chief Advisor to the Research & Innovation for Sustainability Centre (RISC).

“So, together with Baanlaesuan, the leader in home and garden design content, we are presenting 10 RISC innovations in an accessible format. The idea is to share knowledge and promote quality of life in the home through a healthier and more sustainable environment. Baanlaesuan fans and everyone can enjoy monthly updates from January 2022.”

“RISC is Asia’s first research hub dedicated to sustainable development with a wellbeing focus. The centre gathers information and has a global network of sustainability researchers. With a commitment to finding and developing innovations under its concept of ‘For All WellBeing’, the research centre shares knowledge with the public to achieve a wide range of benefits. RISC has therefore partnered with Baanlaesuan to share research and innovation insights in accessible articles. These tips can reach many people, sharing research knowledge with Baanlaesuan readers and enthusiasts of home design with ‘10 Innovations for Healthy and Sustainable Homes’.”

“RISC and Baanlaesuan recognise the importance of housing, health, and wellbeing, which are becoming leading topics and key trends that attract great interest. With the PM2.5 and COVID-19 situations, people are staying indoors and working from home, so they have more interest in and focus on making their homes safe, comfortable, healthy, and good for working and living. RISC and the Baanlaesuan team have made research and innovation accessible.”

“The insights cover energy and environmental issues, keeping homes cool, convenient minimal design, comfortable design for older adults, construction innovations to reduce everyday issues, construction materials from waste to reduce resource use. Home and wellbeing topics will include poor health and accidents, making homes safer and reducing the impact on your health. Behaviour and psychology insights will include reducing stress with home decoration. You can follow and read an item each month from January at www.baanlaesuan.com and FB: Baanlaesuan.com.”

“This initiative continues the successful collaboration earlier this year in which RISC and Baanlaesuan covered 8 residential issues. The great response, with over 1 million hits, found that the most popular content was 10 home defects that impact physical and mental wellbeing, 5 home alterations to overcome insomnia in older adults, and wooden flooring for the wellbeing of older adults. The excellent feedback led to this cooperation, we launched another special column ‘10 Innovations for Healthy and Sustainable Homes’ based on research and innovation in housing and wellbeing from RISC, provided in an accessible form by the team from Baanlaesuan, gaining a strong public response to continue working with RISC on content.”
