iCamp: Keeping Youth Healthy Against Preventable Lifestyle Disease

  1. 1. How might we help youth to protect their health from preventable lifestyle disease ? InSTEDD iLab Southeast Asia November 17, 2017 - iLab Southeast Asia Headquarters, Phnom Penh
  2. 2. In November 2017, InSTEDD iLab Southeast Asia organized an iCamp at the InSTEDD iLab Office in Phnom Penh.

  4. 4. 1. How to inform youth about the effect of being overweight and how to reduce the advertising of detrimental products such as cigarettes. 2. How to communicate with advertising stakeholders about harmful products that are affecting the health of the youth. 3. How to change youth mindset to not follow the bad examples of their peers. And how to help the youth have knowledge of the most common lifestyle diseases. 4. How to help youth to implement and keep a good daily habit, such as doing exercise 5. How to encourage parents to consider their children’s physical health. 6. How to encourage parents to consider their children’s mental health. 7. How to educate youth about nutrition. Seven challenges to help youth to prevent their health from lifestyle disease were raised by participants:
  5. 5. 1. Educate Youth of the impact of lifestyle disease. 2. Communicate with advertising stakeholders about harmful products that are affecting the health of the youth. 3. Educate youth about the benefits of proper nutrition, exercise, mental health and mindset. Three challenges were voted by participants for further discussing, brainstorming and prototyping:
  6. 6. Understanding the Problem
  7. 7. The participants were divided into three groups to map out and brainstorm the problems associated with the three selected challenges. How can we protect the youth of Cambodia against lifestyle disease?
  8. 8. Creating and Validating Potential Prototypes
  9. 9. Once the groups brainstormed, debated, and sketched out their prototype visions, they then shared their ideas with the rest of the groups, received additional feedback, and landed on three design prototypes.
  10. 10. The Three Design Prototypes
  11. 11. 1. Educate Youth of the impact of lifestyle disease. To educate youth to prevent themselves from lifestyle disease, the team proposed to produce various 1 to 3 minute video clips, to be easily shared on social media and elsewhere.
  12. 12. 2. Communicate with advertising stakeholders about harmful products that are affecting the health of the youth. The team believes that through research and focused reporting, a strategic approach involving advertising data and the impact on the health of the youth, reports could be brought to advertising stakeholders, including departments of government. The team believes that through impactful data, the Cambodian government can limit the amount of harmful product advertising to youth.
  13. 13. 3. Educate youth about the benefits of proper nutrition, exercise, mental health and mindset. In order to educate youth about nutrition, exercise, mental health and their mindset, the team thought of developing a mobile application that could educate youth about these issues in an entertaining way.
  14. 14. At the end of the day, the iCamp created three design prototypes from the initially defined seven challenges. The InSTEDD iLab, along with participating organizations, will continue to work on the development of these proposed solutions against dangerous NCDs affecting the youth.
  15. 15. Another iCamp comes to its completion. This time with the goal of protecting the youth of Cambodia from dangerous lifestyle choices. iCamp events are just one example of how the iLab Southeast Asia is connecting subject matter experts, designers, and programmers on a local level.
