In May 2017 council’s from across the North of England came together to participate in three Local Government Association (LGA) funded Innovation Lab-style workshops in Newcastle, Leeds and Stockport, to focus on promoting healthy lifestyles. Technologists worked alongside service providers and service users and created a number of prototype solutions, some of which can be found here > https://datamillnorth.org/dataset/healthy-and-active-lifestyles
The winner was Leeds-based Imactivate Ltd. who produced What’s About? which enables users to plot a detailed walking route to services in their locality. The user can also switch on points of interest such as blue plaques, along the way. This is a prototype solution and we’d been keen to know what you think – get in touch with us at email@example.com.
