New Collaboration Between Change Makers at Imperial College and Nanyang Technological University

We are excited to announce plans for a new educational project on Health and Sustainability between Change Makers and Nanyang Technological University.

We are delighted to announce that Change Makers have received funding from Imperial College for a collaboration with Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. Nurliyana Daros (Interdisciplinary Collaborative Core Office, NTU) and Mark Pope (Change Makers, Imperial College London) will lead a project on Health and Sustainability education in the coming academic year.

Our project has been designed to address key tenets of the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals, and also align with our institutions learning and teaching strategies. It is centred around a shared philosophy and approach that values:

  1. Human-centred design at the heart of improving health and education while preserving a liveable ecosystem for the future
  2. Connecting the process of ideation, inspiration and implementation to drive co-creative cross-cultural innovation by way of understanding and tackling real-world challenges
  3. Practical visions for how university education can promote experimental innovation and creative confidence through bridging the disconnect between theoretical knowledge and practical skills

Specifically, the collaboration will present a series of events and digital tools that facilitate students’ engagement with transdisciplinary and co-creative design, in the areas of health and sustainability.

Nanyang Technological University and Imperial College staff and students will work together over 12 months. The events and digital tools on health and sustainability will be aimed primarily at undergraduate students, but all staff and students will be welcome to attend.

We will share more details as the project progresses!
