Abstract

When examining human quality of life, it is essential to take into account the intrinsic quality of different living spaces, for example, housing, neighborhoods, schools, workplaces or, on a larger scale, the planet. This issue of the links between quality of life and the environment is becoming increasingly significant with, at a local level, problems resulting from different types of annoyances, such as pollution and noise, while, at a global level, there is the central question of climate change with its harmful consequences for humans and the planet. The problems caused by pollution are extremely important; however, the lack of basic human needs, such as water, food, shelter and safety, is of greater concern, in that it has an even more drastic impact on the quality of life.
