A Safer World
Wherever we are in the world, feeling safe is a basic need.
It drives our choices about where to live and work and it affects whether or not we feel happy.
Thankfully, many of us are able to live protected from danger, risk or injury. But not all goes as planned all the time. It’s unavoidable that sometimes our physical and or mental safety is threatened.
Here at Bath our research teams are working hard to keep us all safe. Whether that’s protection and shelter from global challenges such as strengthening fragile states and tackling climate change or developing solutions to protect our health closer to home.
