Post 8 Brainstorming possibilities for a design response

  1. Who does the problem affect?

According to my research, from my point of view that obesity is not just people’s own problems, the problem also involves many stakeholders. On the one hand, a large part of people think that obesity is not a disease, but a lifestyle choice, so they will not care about this problem. On the other hand, especially in Western countries, fast food culture is a common phenomenon in society. Behind this phenomenon, it should be concerned about the social media, food processing industry and commercial interests of the company gains and losses. My initial research direction was childhood obesity. I found that childhood obesity in Australia has become a very common phenomenon, we can see obese children in many places. Interestingly, according to some research data, in addition to a small part of childhood obesity has a special gene, the rest of the obese children are basically due to bad habits. At the same time, we can see that the parents of obese children who are almost obese. This represents the family education of these people to ignore the problem of obesity. This is a very serious fact I think. This means that in today’s society, the problem of obesity is not paid much attention to, but the problem of obesity is not solved.

  1. What are the boundaries of the problem?

Obesity is closely related to people’s healthy life. Our lives are filled with too many information elements, these are a way to guide obesity. More, I think obesity is a serious and serious social problem for mankind at present. The problem involves a series of small social problems. Interests, culture and people’s lives. So obesity and healthy living is an indispensable part of human life.

  1. When does the problem occur? When does it need to be fixed?

The issue of obesity should be followed by capitalism. We can go back to the past, under the conditions of economic underdevelopment in the past, people do not have a lot of food choices, and physical labor is a social phenomenon, so the problem of obesity is very small. When the social economy is better, people have more conditions to choose more food, a lot of delicious food is often accompanied by obesity energy. When the economic and cultural development to today’s society, obesity has further developed. But humans now have this condition to solve this problem, so we should go all out.

  1. Where does it occur?

All over the world.

  1. Why does it occur?

I think that the problem of obesity is largely caused by human beings themselves. The government has no effective policy to deal with this social problem. Our advertising media, fast food culture, and food companies do not care much about people’s health. People will care about their own health, but also a large part of people do not think obesity is a health problem. From the human itself, the emergence of obesity is divided into natural and acquired. It has now been found that a gene that causes obesity, people with this gene than the average person is more likely to gain weight. Another person is fat because of their bad eating habits and life attitude. In any case, obesity can be controlled. Now science has pointed out a variety of ways to avoid obesity, including diet and exercise. On the other hand, because now is the economy and society, there are too many things in our life that affect the social economy. Many stakeholders are not too concerned about people’s health for the sake of their interests.


Draft proposal

For my proposal I was thinking to make an APP for service design.

I think obesity can be avoided from people’s daily life. So what I’m thinking about is helping people avoid everything from life to obesity or unhealthy living. This app will not be too complicated, but must be very useful. Presumably from the choice of healthy food in this area to design.
