HR!Day187 - Healthy by Design
Humanity Rising Day 187 – Thursday February 18, 2021
|Humanity Rising Day Pages
This is the second of a series of five webinars examining different aspects of the theme of health in its widest sense, from the perspective of two European health NGOs, both committed to supporting social change.
Nordic Health 2030 is a network of 30 or more Nordic organisations supporting better health through an equal balance between care and prevention. They are value driven, committed to trust and openness, creativity and innovation, the concept of individual responsibility and finally, to cultivation: building on these principles through social movements. Represented here by Lars Münter who leads for Communications as he does at his ‘day-job’ with the Danish Committee for Health Education, in Copenhagen.
The European Health Futures Forum is a network organisation registered in Ireland, but with Directors and Board reflecting its international focus. EHFF seeks to transform healthcare and improve the well-being of European citizens by highlighting and addressing prominent factors impacting health and wellness. EHFF is also value driven, seeking to address, through the lens of health and wellbeing, issues such as social cohesion, dysfunctional financial models, environmental sustainability and education with an open-source, inclusive and inter-generational approach. David Somekh, Network Director, on behalf of his EHFF colleagues, has co-produced these webinars.
We started last week by considering health in the context of society, of communities working together, sharing collective and individual responsibility both to preserve and improve health and well-being but also supporting transformational change within society, for the betterment of the planet, the environment, for our children and for those who depend on us.
Morten Nielsen of the Copenhagen based International Federation for Housing and Planning talks about designing cities to promote a healthier life for citizens. Robert Rubenstein, founder of TBLI explains the triple bottom line for company investment: people, planet and profit; and how that approach can contribute to a healthier society. From a health planning perspective, Hans Martens, Senior Advisor, European Policy Centre (EPC) discusses the issue of resilience of health systems and lessons to be learnt from the COVID pandemic. Finally, Daniel Steenstra, formerly Professor of Disruptive Innovation at Cranfield University, and a member of the EHFF Advisory Board and his colleague Veron Lai bring insights from engineering and applied design on the inherent weaknesses and challenges in current health service design and implications for the future.
