NCDFREE Innovation Incubator X Oslo
May 11, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0
After a sensational launch in Melbourne, NCDFREE are bringing the Innovation Incubator to Oslo – our latest event which aims to engage the next generation of leaders from health and beyond.
This 150 minute workshop will showcase the wide variety of activities and concepts which NCDFREE has developed and championed since 2013, specifically focusing on the diverse communication and advocacy tools used to engage young professionals and students in the topics of non communicable diseases and Global Health.
Attendees will gain innovative thinking, advocacy and leadership skills through interactive presentations, skill sharing and design-oriented exercises. Ultimately, we aim to connect a diverse group of next generation thinkers and leaders with NCDs, NCDFREE and Global Health through stimulating and exciting activities.
This session will focus on the theme of climate change and health, and therefore we have exclusively secured the voices of emerging leaders Natalie Molino and Dr Sudhvir Singh from the EAT Initiative who will share their knowledge, skills and experiences.
This event is held in collaboration with Norwegian Public Health association and is free for all to participate regardless of background or university affiliation.
The EAT Foundation builds on the work of the EAT Initiative, created by the Stordalen Foundation and Stockholm Resilience Centre in 2013. Together with the Wellcome Trust they launched the EAT Foundation in March 2016 with the ambition to reform the global food system, enabling us to feed a growing global population with healthy food from a healthy planet. The three organisations will use their unique range of experience in health, science, policy and sustainability, to convene experts and decision makers who together can transform the way we eat.
