DIA TWITTER HOUR #Survive&Thrive

12 October 2015

Following the success of our previous Twitter Hours on #circularbydesign#thinkdesign and #foodfutures, DiA was excited to host our fourth Twitter Hour around the theme of #Survive&Thrive.

The discussion set the scene for our Chiasma ‘Surviving and Thriving’ Chiasma* taking place at the Northern Design Centre at NewcastleGateshead from 3rd – 5th November, which focuses on health education and promotion, primary care delivery, the commissioning of public health services and self-management. This event is being run in partnership with Northumbria University.

During the hour, the following themes were discussed: –

  • Redesigning health self-management
  • How to increase engagement in exercise
  • The role of big data for promoting healthy living
  • Creative perspectives in the Wellbeing sector

Thank you to everyone who joined us to discuss these fascinating topics and who helped unpack the pressing issues and future opportunities for the food sector, with a design twist. You can view the conversation via the hashtags #DiAHour #Survive&Thrive.
