The Built Environment

The built environment includes human-made structures, features, and facilities where we live and work. “Place is not just a thing in the world but a way of understanding the world” (Cresswell, 2015). The places that people live their lives in can greatly increase (or decrease) social inclusion, social isolation, and loneliness. These experiences are closely linked to vulnerability to poverty, and this concept is further explored in the resources found in this section.
