'Co-create: life's professional challenges’ : Loneliness project

After last years’ success the elective course “Co-create” is  about to start a new and quite different project, inviting the students of Utrecht University to challenge themselves once again!

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. These numbers concern the Municipality of Utrecht, which is calling the students of Utrecht University to contribute with their knowledge and ideas to a solution 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.

During this elective course the students have the opportunity to work on a real problem and contribute to the society. Moreover they have the opportunity to develop their personal and professional skills under the guidance of experts from different fields.

Take the challenge and JOIN NOW! The applications are open and we are excited to meet you!
