Host: René Stevens, CEO/Owner ATELIER V real estate + Founder/Host The ‘E’ of real estate podcast – Amersfoort, The Netherlands/ Colwyn Bay, United Kingdom.
The purpose of this podcast is to create a positive impact by raising awareness and providing best practice examples about rethinking university campuses to maximize human potential. An exploration odyssey about REAL ESTATE and the REAL STATE of HUMANS.
The interaction between the state of the built environment (physical, digital, social) and of the health (body, mind, heart, spirit) of people using the built environment. I will talk with experts to explore new perspectives and their practical implementation on cutting-edge topics.
How can a campus inspire and motivate people? How can it support the educational process to an even higher degree? How can a university campus stay adaptive over time? I’m doing this for Facilities and Real Estate managers of university campuses. Who focus, besides functional and technical aspects also on the experiences of students and employees.
I will elaborate on how the learning environment can be used as a management tool. A tool to support achieving strategic goals and for the well-being of people. And first steps towards a realization that are practical and at low risk.
One of the main questions that will be addressed is: How to measure quality/performance of a campus in a SMART way? So that it can be used as a means for continuous adaptation to reach a sustainable FIT FOR PURPOSE.
Finding solutions by integrating best practices and giving new perspectives. Doing so creates enriched insights about possibilities with a campus environment.
- To raise awareness about the opportunities to add more value to the learning environment than just providing space with the right inner climate. Doing so creates stepping stones for facility and real estate managers to build further on.
- To create more effective learning environments with a higher degree of satisfaction for students and staff.
- To contribute to better education and research for helping to solve the major issues we people and the planet Earth are facing now.
It is time for action to create the future we want.
