8 April 2020
Drs Kathryn Janda and Ian Hamilton from UCL Energy Institute held a workshop in Israel on applying the middle-out perspective to public health
On 11 March 2020, Dr Kathryn Janda and Dr Ian Hamilton from UCL Energy Institute (the Bartlett), with Dr Yael Parag of the Interdisciplinary Centre (IDC), held a “Middle-Out Perspective on Public Health” workshop at IDC in Herzliya, Israel.
This transdisciplinary event brought together seven experts from the UK and 13 from Israel to conceptualise new social and environmental approaches for improving public health. The current coronavirus crisis provided a timely focus for discussions.
A brief video on change from middle-out is available here:
Workshop participant Professor Jenny Mindell from UCL Department of Epidemiology and Public Health said: “I have now realised that what I have been doing for the past 30 years is 'middle-out' working!”
Going forward, the participants plan several papers and future research projects on synergies between different disciplines, countries and research areas on change from the middle-out.
