Workshop 1: Explore what brain health means to you

In this workshop, we will be diving into your thoughts on ageing, brain health, and any campaigns you know of that have addressed dementia risk.

Workshop 2: Identify your brain healthy lifestyle

In this workshop, we will be exploring what behaviours you think need to be prioritised to maintain brain health.

Workshop 3: Design a campaign to reduce dementia risk

In this workshop, we will be gathering your ideas and expertise in designing a public health campaign that works to address brain health and reduce dementia risk.

Usability testing: Test your brain health campaign

You will experience a prototype of the brain health campaign we have created based on your participation in the previous workshops, and you will be given the opportunity to provide any final comments before the big campaign launch!
