Promote on-going education about WELL by encouraging projects to offer building tours and educational components highlighting WELL features pursued for certification.
Increasing awareness about healthy buildings is a central part of WELL’s mission. Education on WELL is best showcased by inviting individuals into the physical project space and highlighting the WELL features pursued. To receive credit for this Innovation, projects must provide tours of the space as well as implement education strategies that enable building occupants and visitors to learn more about the impact of built spaces on their health and well-being.
