Having tripled globally and increased almost five times in children and adolescents, since 1975, Obesity has now become a global phenomenon, affecting people of all ages, from all social groups in both developed and developing countries.
Its predominance, increasing at an alarming rate, obesity today is responsible for 8% of global deaths.
Followed by a long list of myths and constantly being misunderstood, how can we stop the blame game and re-evaluate our approach in addressing this complex, global health problem?
How can we respond to this global health crisis?
How can we bridge the gap between community and wellbeing?
As a solution, how can this be community focused, inclusive and age appropriate? Does the fact that most lifestyle diseases including obesity, lack a specific prerequisite, but is rather reflective of the way we live, mean that we start as young as possible?
How far would creating and expanding awareness and guidance work as a solution toward growing health concerns? How can it be made accessible and wholesome?
Design challenge : Develop a solution for a Centre of Wellness, a space that encourages, simplifies, informs and guides holistic community health.
