Public health challenges such as poor diet, smoking and binge drinking are just a few lifestyle issues that could be addressed with some ‘design thinking’ according to Design Council and the Local Government Association (LGA). Design in Public Sector programme is now open for applications with the aim of attracting forward thinking councils focusing on prevention.
This autumn, Design Council and the LGA are targeting public health teams and prevention will be top of the agenda. Public health professionals and people working to improve the health of the nation are encouraged to sign up and explore how design can help them tackle some our biggest societal challenges.
