Description

The Department of Health commissioned the Innovation Lab to run a Strategic Insight Lab process over 2 days to consider an overarching challenge question relating to the area of Childhood Obesity, ‘How can we create a society in which children grow up a healthy weight?’
The DoH identified key stakeholders to consider the question and come up with recommendations, from a holistic perspective that would commence the discussion on the future strategic direction for Childhood Obesity.
It is intended that the outputs of the Strategic Insight Lab – the high-level recommendations setting the strategic direction in response to the challenge question – will be presented to NI Ministers in due course for their consideration. Alongside this, DoH are committed to considering how they might implement any recommendations that are within the existing parameters of their current remit.
