Gen Z Pathfinders Programme

Was the training helpful? 100% Agree

In early 2021, we created a pilot for a UK-focused programme. We developed an innovative co-creation approach, promoting public health preparedness. The approaches we use:

  • Evidence-based psychology
  • Design workshops
  • Systems thinking
  • Participants led sessions
  • Project management

We are looking for Pathfinder Patrons to support our training so that tomorrows leaders can design solutions today. Email your enquiries to pathfinders@publichealthpathways.org.

The structure of the design workshops were great at helping to narrow focus on quite an overwhelming topic

Voice of the Future

In late 2020, we surveyed 18 to 26 year olds in the UK (Gen Z) about public health and COVID-19. We published the results in a report, Voice of the Future: Listening to Gen Z on Covid-19, Mental Health, Education, Work, and Misinformation. They said: 

  • I am more concerned about poorer countries? 85% Agree.

  • I have had access to the support you need? 50% say No.

  • I believe misinformation is a critical challenge today? 96% Agree.

  • Is there a need for our charity? 72% Agree.

“This timely report reflects diverse young people’s concerns about public health during the pandemic…”

Dr Anna Carlile, Goldsmiths, University of London.

The report identified a clear need for further research and investment to help Gen -Z adapt to a rapidly changing environment with the complex challenges that will have an enormous bearing on their future.
