Embassy of Health – Conference

The transition to ‘chronic health’ is the theme of this conference. We discuss the collaboration needed to create a healthy society. We explore the role designers play in bringing people together and what expertise is needed to design such society. Only together we are able to make the changes that are necessary to live healthier.

14:00 – 16:00u Embassy of Health Conference

Frank Kolkman (speculative designer), Sabine Wildevuur (director DesignLab University of Twente) and Marleen Stikker (director Waag) explore the role of artificial intelligence. 

How do we relate to AI? And how do we design a desired future with AI as a stakeholder in this future?

Together with Bas Bloem (neurologist Radboud UMC), Lex Burdorf (professor Erasmus MC) and Irene Fortuyn (social designer) we will discuss the role that our landscape plays to be able to live healthy. And how we can use our talents to contribute to a healthy landscape.

Stannie Driessen (director of the Council for Public Health & Society) and Jetske van Oosten (curator Embassy of Health) reflect on the Chronic Health exhibition and the need for encounters. How can our living environment make room for encounters in public (outdoor) space and facilitate social contact and mutual connection.
