DISCOVER THE INTERNATIONAL HUB NETWORK AND HOW TO GET INVOLVED

With six active Engage Hubs since 2020, the international Hub network will be expanding in three new countries in 2022: Mexico, South Africa and Japan. Find out more about your network of interest and detailed information on how to get involved below!

OUR MISSION

The Falling Walls Engage Hubs aim to build a global community of Science Engagers and organisations connecting Science Engagement networks from around the world. The objective is to enable a global dialogue around key issues and challenges through regional perspectives while facilitating the building of long-term connections and sustainable partnerships.

As a growing network, the Engage Hubs translate into a series of in-person and virtual activities, from community building and activation events to public science showcases. Our activities are aimed at three main target groups: practitioners, researchers and science-related institutions, and the general public.

At the institutional level, the Engage Hubs enable partner organisations and institutions to strengthen their global presence, support activities and synergies, and envision new international cooperations.

IN FOCUS IN 2022: PLANETARY HEALTH

Planetary Health is a new academic field and policy framework focusing on the interconnections between human health and environmental sustainability. Bringing together a wide range of disciplines, Planetary Health is concerned with human-caused changes in Earth’s natural systems and their consequences on human health and wellbeing. This framework calls urgent attention to the degradation of our planet, from climate change, species extinction, the pollution of air, water and soil, to the negative impact food production and land use. It urges for joint efforts from multiple sectors, research disciplines, social and political actors to reverse the trend and safeguard our health and the future of our planet.

This year, the Falling Walls Engage Hubs will be stirring up conversations on this topic by exploring innovative research and practices and engaging with regional perspectives at the intersection of health, the environment and engagement.
