Feel Good Works is a collaboration with Boots to tackle the health and wellbeing of future generations.
36% of young people in the UK feel anxious about everyday situations. More than one third of 11-15 year olds are overweight or obese. 87 % of teenage girls are unhappy with their appearance.
It is no wonder then that the health and wellbeing of future generations is in jeopardy. Boots came to us with a mission, to tackle that.
Together we have been working on developing a collaborative social innovation programme focused on a new social mission and a ‘test and learn’ operating model (prototype, pilot, scale). We are currently focussing on these 3 challenges:
- Promoting healthy eating and living to tackle diabetes and obesity.
- Promoting physical activity and outdoor exercise to help build body confidence.
- Promoting mental wellbeing and mindfulness to help tackle anxiety and stress.
