Wellbeing & Community

All our challenges are ultimately focused on stimulating innovations and positive outcomes to enhance the wellbeing of communities, whether that be through science and technology or social innovation.

People-powered communities

Many social challenges faced by communities have scope for innovation: responding to the world’s ageing populations, tackling discrimination and inequalities, supporting refugee communities, to name a few. We design, deliver and consult on a range of social challenges focused on galvanising solvers to innovate for the wellbeing of their communities.

International collaboration

We have worked with a range of international partners such as Nordic Innovation, Active and Assistive Living (AAL) and All Children Reading to support the design of prizes aimed at enhancing the lives of disenfranchised communities around the world.
