Co-challenge 2018

The Challenge

Based on the most recent health assessment, it has been concluded that 40% of adult citizens feel lonely and that 1 in 10 experience extreme loneliness. The Municipality of Utrecht asks your help in order to reduce the feeling of loneliness, by making Utrechters feel more connected to each other and the society.

The students are asked to find a solution to this problem based on an interdisciplinary approach and design. This should be an innovative and creative idea that will improve the quality of life for citizens. The aim is to decrease the feeling of loneliness and provide the inhabitants of Utrecht with a feeling of belonging.

Due to the complexity of the problem, it will be a challenge to identify the causes of loneliness, the target group and possible interventions. The solution can be out-of-the-box, as long as it is applicable in the Municipality of Utrecht!

Join this challenge and discover how combining experiences, knowledge and skills can lead to creative solutions!!
