Our Stockwell

Tackling Childhood Obesity Through Design

How can we effectively engage with the Stockwell community to improve health and well-being? 

The Our Stockwell project is part of ‘Healthy Starts, Successful Futures’, an ambitious community partnership initiated by the Battersea Power Station Foundation and Hyde Foundation.

It is a community-led place-based approach focusing on creating community solutions to address the issue of childhood obesity. It focuses on more than diet alone – investigating many other factors, such as how mental well-being, the local built environment, family life, daily routines, education and culture influence the risk of childhood obesity.

Following a range of community research engagements, Research Associate Carmel Keren will be working with the community to design and build responses which can be tested out via a combination of specifically tailored workshops and conversations in the parks and on the streets of Stockwell.
