World of Wellness
How can we increase human wellbeing for those who need help the most?
Students must investigate how human wellbeing is measured, what factors affect assessments of human wellbeing, and why human wellbeing is unequally distributed across the world.
Having done so, students must create an NGO focused on one key issue impacting wellbeing which each team decides is the most pressing problem to solve.
Students must then develop a plan to improve wellbeing by tackling that problem and must then create a public awareness campaign to raise awareness (and donations) for the NGO to tackle that issue!
Exploration of human wellbeing. Students will explore how human wellbeing is measured and the different indices and factors widely considered. They must determine whether wellbeing is generally improving or declining based on available data
Wellbeing case studies. Students will draw upon case studies to explore variations of wellbeing across genders, locations, and demographics, driven by population changes, disease, and racial/gender inequality
