Dr Vanessa Champion, Editor and Founder of Journal of Biophilic Design

Originally an academic at UCL, Ness has a PhD in Greek and Latin, who also worked in the British Museum, honing her interest in research in how societies flourish and how the visual environment informs our behaviours.

After editing a London newspaper and setting up her own media company, she founded The Journal of Biophilic Design to share interviews with thought leaders on how biophilia supports wellbeing for people, planet and place.

A serial traveller and professional photographer, Ness creates “Virtual Nature Walls” for healthcare, schools, offices and homes. Ness is also founder of PhotoAid Global Foundation and co-founder of The Space Doctors.
