Open Lab Meeting: November

We hosted our second Open Lab meeting in November and asked:

How can design bring us together to improve children and young people’s mental health?

Our speaker was Keili Koppel, a previous Emerging Minds intern.

The session focused on collaborative ways of working. Keili gave a short presentation on how design research and practice has brought stakeholders together to explore children and young people’s mental health, its challenges and possibilities. 

The presentation was followed by an activity-mediated discussion in small groups where we explored what our shared, collaborative working environment might be like.

Keili has a master’s degree in design innovation & environmental design from the Glasgow School of Art. She is interested in design as a form of inquiry, collaborative approaches, and creative engagement.
