Healthy Habits Through Design” The Stanford Center on Longevity Design Challenge is a global competition that encourages students to design products and services to improve well-being across the lifespan. In its fifth year, the Challenge is focused on ideas that create and support healthy habits –including financial, physical, and social behaviors—which are shown to improve quality of life. Why habits matter: The extension of average life expectancy around the globe over the past 100 years is unprecedented in human history. People living in the developed world can now regularly expect to live into their 80’s and beyond. According to the Sightlines Project of the Stanford Center on Longevity, there are key factors in the realm of healthy living, financial security, and social engagement that impact the quality of life at every age. “Effective actions to address these issues via policies, awareness and innovation can improve individual and national well-being as we enable and prepare for living well and living long in 21st century America.” The 2017-2018 Challenge focuses on promoting habits that maximize physical, mental, and financial resources for individuals and families of any age. What “Quality of Life” means: Three out of four Americans surveyed in 2016 indicated that they want to live to 100 if they can do so in good health. But quality of life includes much more than just physical wellbeing. Compelling scientific evidence indicates that living long and living well is most realistic for those who are socially engaged, adopt healthy living behaviors, and are able to build financial security. Optimizing for quality of life therefore includes actions and behaviors at all ages. For example, financial security begins with practices and attitudes that individuals engage in from their 20s and onward. Additionally, regular community and social engagement are positive indicators of future health and life satisfaction. The Challenge: The Stanford Center on Longevity is looking for design ideas which promote habits that improve quality of life across the age spectrum. The best designs are innovative, engaging, practical, and readily understood. User testing of designs has been a critical step for past winners and novel, scalable, and inexpensive design solutions tend to be favored by judges. We invite submissions that meet these criteria and that promise to help people everywhere who wish to become mentally sharp, physically fit, and financially secure.

Phase I: September 5 -December 8, 2017 Phase I is the open call portion of the challenge. During this time, teams will learn about the topic and create their solution concept. The Challenge organizing team will be available during this time for questions and to provide contacts for mentoring when possible. Solutions may be submitted at any time during this period, but no judging feedback will be available until January. Judging Period – December 2017 – January 2018 During this period, our judging panel will select a small number of finalists. Finalists will be announced in mid-January. Phase II: January 2018 – April 2018 During Phase II, finalists will be asked to further develop their idea and to prepare a presentation to be given at the Awards Ceremony at Stanford University in April of 2015 (exact date TBD). Mentors from corporate partners and industry experts will be available during this period. At the Awards, one team representative will present their idea to the judges who will then pick the First, Second and Third place winners.
