Sleep plays an essential role in our lives for both physical and mental reasons. In recent years, scientific research into the importance of sleep has been thrust into the mainstream, as new light has been shed on how sleep affects everything form our professional development to our emotional and social selves. And in a technology driven world, the havoc technology plays on our sleep schedules is an ever-growing concern.
In this panel, we explore the fascinating science behind sleep, why sleep is important to a well-functioning society, and most importantly, how we can get a better night’s rest. Urbanist Matthew Beaumont and historian Sasha Handley will be our panellists for this discussion.
