Global Health Design: The Partnership for Youth and Planetary Wellbeing
This is the second seminar of the six-part seminar series Massive Action: Global Health Design, led by visionary designer Bruce Mau.
In this seminar, we will learn about the Partnership for Youth and Planetary Wellbeing, led by faculty fellow Kate Tilleczek, and community fellow Bruce Mau will offer insights and lead a workshop on the project's design opportunities.
About the Partnership for Youth and Planetary Wellbeing
Ecological devastation and climate change are among the world’s most pressing problems, with thousands of youth pitching in to fuel a movement to address the issues. We do not yet understand the size, scope or meaning of the youth movement for planetary health. The Partnership connects new, diverse, intergenerational groups of scholars, youth, trainees, communities, and civil societies to:
- Map the range, efficacy and gaps in youth-centred practices and policies for youth and planetary wellbeing
- Work with inclusive groups of young people and their communities to record and analyze the impacts on youth wellbeing including their responses
- Leverage our data for co-development with youth of new education to intentionally amplify their knowledge, practices and solutions to advance the UN Sustainable Development Goals
- Evaluate and share new evidence and educational tools with global and local policy and practice audiences who are well placed to make a difference.
