Using the power of design thinking, we partner with government, academia, industries, charities, social enterprises, non-profits, and groups to redefine community standards. Together, we empower communities to shape their own paths to being active, connected, resilient, and prosperous, on their own terms, with their own voices.
We dive deep into understanding unmet community needs and social issues. Then, we co-create, prototype, and evaluate solutions, delivering positive impacts that empower, enlighten, bring joy, inspire action, and are cherished by the very community that birthed them.
The Collaboratory will start to offer a range of services including:
- Partnership rentals: Conducting community action based research, creating and building physical or digital projects; engage the community’s perspective on local issues or sharing your research or knowledge dissemination with others including public lectures, events, conferences, webinars, podcasts, exhibits and interactive showcases.
- Vivo Driven Initiatives: Partnering with others to implement multi-year funded projects that drive and measure population change across physical, social and environmental health and well-being.
