My Body: My Planet
My Body: My Planet is a research and development project delivered in collaboration with the Museum for the United Nations - UN Live and funded by the Wellcome Trust.
The goal of the project was to explore how to leverage culture to connect with young people (18-24 year olds) and encourage them to take action for their health and the health of the planet.
In 2021, we aimed to empower local institutions in four countries by adopting a participatory design process that invited stakeholders, experts and young people to shape the project designs.
In each country, we led a project with local partners, experts and communities to explore how we can encourage young people to take action on climate change. Find out more about the projects below.
