The Grand Challenge of Human Wellbeing looks beyond traditional definitions of health and examines the wide range of disciplines that contribute to our sense of wellbeing.

UCL Grand Challenge of Human Wellbeing Stats


Since 2010, Human Wellbeing has funded over £307,000 in grants to 82 projects and has generated more than £19m in further funding from the UK’s Department for International Development and the Ageing Better in Camden Network.

Human Wellbeing also facilitated the UCL Festival of Ageing, a series of events looking at issues affecting older people, work examining the links between cultures and health systems, disability, and the relationship between environment and wellness. Furthermore, it was a key driver in the creation of the UCL Centre for Behaviour Change, following UCL Behaviour Change Month, a period of intense collaborations and creative thinking held in 2012.
