The IAPS Restorative Environments Network (iapsREN) is an international community of practitioners and researchers interested in how our environments can foster restoration. Born in Rome in 2008, we operate under the auspices of the International Association of People-Environment Studies (IAPS). During 2012 in Glasgow, iapsREN gathered new momentum, resulting in our newly designed identity and community. We are proud to continue being a strong and continually growing IAPS network.
iapsREN is convened by Ellie Ratcliffe, Kate Lee, Robert van Dongen, and Stephanie Wilkie. We are indebted to previous committee members, most recently Femke Beute and Kayleigh Wyles, along with Sarah Payne, Carlos Galan-Diaz, Kathryn Colley, Adam Day, and Lynette Robertson who helped shape the REN into its current form, maximising on digital media capabilities. We are proud to build on the excellent work of the founding members of iapsREN: Terry Hartig, Helena Nordh, Jenny Roe, and Kevin Thwaites. Their work is much appreciated.
