Fitness First – Design a Holistic Wellness Centre
Having tripled globally and increased almost five times in children and adolescents, since 1975, Obesity has now become a global phenomenon, affecting people of all ages, from all social groups in both developed and developing countries.Its predominance, increasing at an alarming rate, obesity today is responsible for 8% of global deaths.Followed by a long list of myths and constantly being misunderstood, how can we stop the blame game and re-evaluate our approach in addressing this complex, global health problem? How can we respond to this global health crisis?
How can we bridge the gap between community and well being?As a solution, how can this be community-focused, inclusive, and age-appropriate? Does the fact that most lifestyle diseases including obesity, lack a specific prerequisite, but is rather reflective of the way we live, mean that we start as young as possible?How far would create and expanding awareness and guidance work as a solution to growing health concerns? How can it be made accessible and wholesome?
Design challenge: Develop a solution for a Center of Wellness, a space that encourages, simplifies, informs, and guides holistic community health.
